Other Middle Eastern Languages at USC

Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian are offered every fall and spring semester at USC. In the past, MESP has also offered courses in Avestan, the language of the Zoroastrian scriptures, and Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, the common language of the Middle East in classical antiquity.

Let us know what Middle Eastern languages you would like to learn. We will try to find ways to connect you with the resources to study them.
