In N399 students will do advanced readings in Arabic or Persian in preparation for work on a research project.

All IUB undergraduate students who matriculate in or after first summer session of 2011 are required to complete the campuswide GenEd program prior to graduation. This new curriculum is intended to ensure that, through the Common Ground requirements, all undergraduates at IUB develop a host of essential skills in arts and humanities, social and historical studies, natural and mathematical sciences, and world languages and cultures. The GenEd Curriculum also includes Shared Goals of intensive writing experience, information fluency, an understanding of diversity in the United States, and other enriching educational experiences. The Common Ground requirements are the same for all undergraduate students, regardless of their school or academic unit. Shared Goals are implemented by the schools in ways that complement their degree programs. For a list of NELC courses offered to satisfy the General Education requirements, consult the GenEd master list.
