A Few Good Reasons
The ratio of students to lecturers is ideal, seminar groups are small, lecturers are easily and directly approachable, and our specialist library is very well equipped.
The acquisition of theoretical and methodological skills necessary to access classical and modern Arabic literature is a core objective of the programme. And naturally, advanced language acquisition also plays a very important role.
In addition to Arabic Studies, the Institute for Middle Eastern Studies is home to numerous subjects whose modules students may combine with the programme’s core curriculum: Iranian Studies; Islamic Studies; Turkish Studies; Islamic Art and Archaeology; Jewish Studies; and General Linguistics.
Coordinating foreign studies is easy with our many partner universities. Lecturers and academic staff provide students with advice and assistance when choosing relevant institutions and organisations (for internships and language courses). For detailed Information regarding funding opportunities, and for general information on applications, you can arrange a personal consultation with the International Office.
In addition, the diverse activities hosted by the department of Arabic Studies open up unique networking opportunities.
Bamberg’s Excellent Learning Environment
Bamberg is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the enchantment of this small city never fails to arouse the interest of all those involved or simply interested in the cultural sector. This cultural heritage also benefits the University of Bamberg’s institute for Middle Eastern Studies : students involved in the Arbeitskreis Orient (Middle Eastern Studies research group) participate actively in the life of the Institute, maintain academic networks and in so doing also contribute to the quality and the diversity of the University of Bamberg and the city.
