Alumni Updates: Arabic

  • Claypool, Mary (Class of 2003) Since graduation in 2003, I worked for two years as a legal assistant before returning to graduate studies in the language I love, French. I received my Master's degree in French in 2007 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and am currently writing my dissertation in Geneva, Switzerland thanks to a dissertation fellowship. The Ph.D. is not far off! I also have continued to develop my Arabic skills, with the help of a FLAS grant for study in Morocco. My work as a contract linguist for the FBI has allowed me to apply my language skills, and I am grateful for the foundational training W&M provided!
  • Farrar, Adam (Class of 2010) (BA Middle Eastern Studies, Psychology):  I am currently an M.A. Candidate in the Arab Studies program at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. (Updated 2010)
  • Hoyne, Alexa (Class of 2010) (BA Middle Eastern Studies): I might be starting graduate school at Georgetown next semester! (Updated 2010)
