The Early Flagship Program

Students enrolled in the first four semesters of Arabic (ARAB 101 – 202) are eligible to apply to the Early Flagship and take advantage of several important resources as they work towards advanced proficiency.

Peer-to-Peer Tutoring

The Flagship Center arranges for advanced Arabic students to provide weekly tutoring to those in the Early Flagship program. Many students have benefited from the linguistic knowledge, practical experience, and emotional support of a mentor student who walked the same path only a short time before.

The Arabic Lab

In addition to tutors, the Flagship also provides a dedicated open time for students at all levels to sit down with native or near-native speakers and get feedback from someone other than their instructor. Whether students are just forming sentences or writing an Arabic capstone paper, help is available according to their needs.

The writing lab is located in 4096A JKB, and is normally scheduled Monday through Thursday, from 3:00 – 5:00 PM.


A critical benefit of enrolling in the Early Flagship is access to the Arabic Flagship Center staff, who  help students to organize their coursework, build professional connections, and prepare for a future with Arabic.
