MESAS offers undergraduate minors in Arabic, Modern Hebrew, Hindi and Persian. The language minors require students to complete three years of language study, most often including the elementary (101/102), intermediate (201/202) and advanced (301/302) levels of the language. Students with previous knowledge of a language above the intermediate level may obtain a minor by taking three additional language courses above their present level in addition to an approved course in literature of the particular language. Arabic and Hebrew both offer courses beyond the Advanced level, with Arabic offering a fourth year, Advanced Plus language sequence (401/402), and Hebrew offering a number of different fourth-year (400 level) language courses, including Modern Hebrew Literature and Hebrew of the Israeli Media.
