The Department of Semitic and Arabic Studies has formally existed at Freie Universität Berlin since 1957/1958 – teaching began in 1963. Since then, the professors of Arabic Studies have expanded established fields of research such as classical Arabic literature and Quranic studies to include diverse directions, such as the development of Arabic script, classical Arabic poetry in its social environment, cultural and intellectual history of the Arabic-speaking world, as well as early Arabic book culture from the perspective of media history.

Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Beatrice Gründler, the focus today is on a philological as well as aesthetic approach to the study of forms, media and texts of classical as well as modern Arabic literature. This includes aspects of interculturality, history of knowledge and diversity research. A close connection between research and teaching is characteristic of all areas.

Arabic Studies can be studied at Freie Universität Berlin in the bachelor's program History and Culture of the Middle East and in the master's program Arabic Studies. Interdisciplinary forms of study are also offered in the English-language master's program Interdisciplinary Studies of the Middle East (ISME)

In addition, History and Culture of the Middle East can be selected as a module offering in the combined bachelor's degree. Furthermore, Arabic Studies is involved in the introductory and orientation study program EinS@FU
