Program Location

Based in Amman, Jordan (one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world), this program provides firsthand insight into a modern Middle Eastern state grappling with regional conflict, political responsibility, and social change. Sharing borders with Syria, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, this moderate Arab country is a regional hub for education, communications, transportation, tourism, and investment.

Not Offered in 2016

Students will have the opportunity to experience the Arabic culture, history, and language while staying in the heart of the Arab world: Amman, Jordan.

Your Middle-eastern adventure will afford you the opportunity to learn the Arabic language as it is practiced in real life situations, explore archaeology by visiting several ancient sites, and develop your writing skills in English as you reflect on your experiences.
