French Institute of the Middle East

French Institute of the Middle East
The medium of instruction is Arabic. Knowledge of French is not necessary, but would be useful.
DEADLINE: 25th June 2011

Yearly Arabic Programme 2011–2012 in Damascus
 Ifpo (Département des études arabes, médiévales et modernes) organizes the Yearly Arabic Programme in association with the University of Paris-Sorbonne. This programme provides a comprehensive, research-oriented, linguistic training. It is open to students having had at least two years of Arabic, and able to produce a research project.
The teaching comprises at least fifteen weekly hours, which are divided into 
  • eleven hours of group sessions and four hours of individual tutorials. Group sessions are given on the following topics: Arabic grammar and linguistics, classical literature, history of the Arab world, Islamic history, Islamic thought, modern literature, oral and written expression, media and contemporary Arabic culture, Syrian dialect. 
  • In the individual tutorials, the student chooses a field of study, and is taught by the professor who specializes in that subject. Individual tutorials allow each student to better define his or her research project and, in the case of students already advanced in their research, to make substantial progress. Individual tutorials can also be adjusted to a professional project.
