Abstract: This research studies the role of Arabic language co-curriculum activities in Islamic Science University of Malaysia (USIM) also previously known as Islamic University College of Malaysia (KUIM) in improving the students' language proficiency. In order to achieve the main objective of this research, about 67 questionnaires were distributed to the students from the first, second and third year of Bachelor of Arabic Language and Communication from Faculty of Major Languages, USIM. Besides that, the pre and post tests were administrated during selected Arabic language activities such as Language Camp, Language Month, Language Week and Mentor-mentee programme. The researchers also conducted several interviews to a number of academicians, 2 FPBU's students and 2 students from Faculty of Economic and Muamalat and Faculty of Quranic and Sunnah Studies respectively. The objective of engaging this interview is to gather students' responses on the role of Arabic language co-curriculum activities in improving their language proficiency as well as to know their problems and point of views on the activities. This research found that the co-curriculum activities which were held at either FPBU or USIM level to some extend, play a very important role in improving the students' proficiency in Arabic language. Nevertheless, the research also revealed a few setback in such language programs conducted, including failing to meet the program's objective due to excessive loads of planned activities. Hence, this research further suggested that organizers to prepare a detailed and comprehensive annual planning prior to the programme or activities held, apart from monitoring the faculty's activities to ensure effective and conductive learning environment instilled in such programmes.
