College expands Arabic course offerings through Fulbright program

Greeting in Arabic
The College has expanded its Arabic language program after becoming a host institution with the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program, a competitive program that pairs international educators with U.S. colleges and universities.

This fall, UNH welcomed Samah El-Said from Egypt, who is teaching UNH’s first advanced Arabic language courses.

“Our students have been asking for access to higher-level Arabic courses. At the same time, the college, and indeed the university, has been keenly interested in internationalizing the campus for our students. We’ve addressed both of these interests creatively with the success of this Fulbright application. We are very pleased to welcome Ms. El-Said to our faculty,” said Dean Kenneth Fuld.
