This is an advanced language subject for honours students in Arabic. The level of study, content, and assessment in the subject will be determined by the Coordinator after placement testing. Based on the outcome of testing, students will either be placed in an appropriate stream of advanced language study or a customized course of study will be available, focusing on research skills in Arabic.
Assessment will vary based on the outcome of placement testing. In the case of graduates of the BA who started as beginners, assessment will normally follow the form of: Regular homework 15%, continuous oral assessment 20%, a final oral examination 15% (during the examination period) and a final 3-hour written examination 50% (during the examination period). In the case of very advanced students: written essays totaling 5000 words (due at the end of the semester).
