Prospective Students

Our Students

Students come to SILMW for a variety of reasons: To connect with their heritage or ancestral language, to prepare for study or travel abroad, in order to conduct research in a particular language or to obtain employment in certain government agencies. Whatever brings our students to SILMW, we are delighted to share the languages of SILMW with this group of talented and committed individuals.

For example, if you are interested in taking Arabic, the relevant SILMW course will be listed under 'Summer 2020' 'Arabic'. All languages have their own subject headings. Contact language specific instructors if you have difficulty registering for these classes. UIUC students should register for language classes in Summer I and Summer II by May 15th.

(Not applicable to Summer 2020): In addition to the language courses, students must register for LING 110: Cultural Experiences of the Muslim World. Students must register for LING 110 alongside each language course they register for.

Program Registration deadline: MAY 15th, 2020.

SILMW courses open conditional on sufficient enrollment.
