Please see our Resources page for more information on how to apply, housing and meals, courses, and more!

Jordan

Amman, the capital of Jordan, has expanded from a quaint sleepy town to the bustling, multi-cultural metropolis it is today. As Jordan is deeply enmeshed in the international relations of the region, students may find no better place to study pressing Middle Eastern issues and Jordanian Arabic.

Morocco

In the westernmost outpost of the Arab world, students learn firsthand from leading faculty about Morocco's efforts to address contemporary issues such as gender rights, ethnic diversity, and democratization.
