Summer Language Institutes

Why should I enroll?

  • Because UT's program gets results.
  • Because our faculty are unmatched in their credentials, energy, and dedication to their students.
  • Because our program is unlike any language program you've experienced. 
  • Because speaking a critical language will get you a job. If not, at least a date. 
  • Because you will develop skills that will earn you a lifetime of humble bragging.

No, really, why should I enroll?

The Department of Middle Eastern Studies at UT-Austin has a proven language curriculum that gets optimum results. Our experienced and supportive instructors provide a learning environment that takes beginners to the intermediate level, intermediate students to advanced, and advanced students to advanced-high or superior by the end of the summer. Our dynamic language program uses hands-on activities, media, art, current events, group discussions, and one-on-one interactions to keep students engaged with the target language. 

Who should apply?

  • Current UT students
  • Students at other colleges, universities, and high schools
  • Community members
  • Business professionals, military personnel, teachers
  • Anyone interested in the languages and cultures of the Middle East
