BA in Arabic and Government, UT-Austin

Graduate Student & Teaching Assistant
Muna Rehman



I started learning Arabic at UT-Austin in the Fall 2008 and soon thereafter it became the central focus of my academic and professional goals. Therefore, I declared it as my major and joined the Arabic Flagship Program.

As a Flagship scholar at UT not only did I receive excellent stateside Arabic instruction for three years, but I also had the opportunity to participate in a yearlong intensive program in Alexandria University that helped me achieve professional proficiency in Arabic.

While enjoying the Mediterranean coast this past year, I realized that I want to share the wonderful experiences I had and am still having with learning Arabic with others by becoming a teacher. So I decided to come back to UT-Austin as a fellow in the inaugural cohort of the QFI Teacher Fellow Program, and concurrently pursue a Masters in Arabic and teacher certification through UTeach. I am also a TA for First Year Arabic and I love being a part of the incredibly creative and energetic UT Arabic instructional team. Upon graduation I hope to join the ranks of such Arabic instructors as they are always implementing new ideas in the classroom and therefore, changing the field of TAFL.

My primary interest is researching effective methods to introduce and teach culture in the classroom. 

Some of my other interests include: Egyptian sha'bi music, education reform in the Arab World and Pakistan, Yoga/Pilates, and food from all over the world.


Integrating culture in the classroom, curriculum development and educational reform.
