Faculty of Near Eastern Language & Culture

Welcome to Faculty of NEL&C

  • Arabic Department in NUML was established in 1973. We are responsible for teaching Arabic language and literature to the students.
  • Arabic language should not be taken like other foreign languages, such as French, Chinese, Japanese or Korean languages. It has special attraction for the Muslims world over, as it is the language of Holy Quran and Hadith, the source of instructions for the entire humanity. We keep this aspect in our mind while teaching Arabic language and literature.
  • Arabic Department has a dedicated team of highly qualified teachers who works hard day and night for providing quality education to the students. We pay special individual attention to foreign students who learn Arabic language and literature in a very comfortable environment.
  • Arabic Department is playing a vital role in teaching students at various levels – from Basics up to PhD. Initially, we conducted only Certificate and Diploma courses. Subsequently, Diploma in Interpretership and Translation was added. Later on M.A Arabic classes were started in 1975.
  • Presently, we are running 18 different courses at various levels including M.Phil and PhD. We have a faculty of 24 highly qualified teachers.
  • Graduates from Arabic Department are occupying very important key posts in various Research Institutes at national and international level, Educational Institutes in Pakistan and foreign countries, Foreign Office, Foreign Embassies, Pakistan Embassies abroad, Armed Forces (in Pakistan and abroad) and other national and international  organizations.
  • Initially, all the students were from Army and other government Departments. Later on, in view of high quality of education, civilian students were also attracted towards Arabic Department.
  • Arabic Department plays a vital role in teaching Arabic in Pakistan and other parts of the world. Even Arab counties prefer NUML Graduates for strengthening their faculties.
