Area & Arabic Language Studies in Jordan (Semester/Academic Year)

Students in the AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program in Amman carry a 14 to 17 credit hour course load per semester. All students enroll in Arabic and two or three other courses from offerings in Middle East and North African studies in a variety of disciplines taught in English. In addition to academics, our students benefit from an on-site orientation, opportunity to live with a Jordanian family, structured ways to meet local students, and organized excursions to mind-blowing locations around Jordan. AMIDEAST prioritizes the high quality instruction of both Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian colloquial to beginning through advanced speakers of Arabic. Students also select from a variety of English-taught courses focused on the Middle East and North Africa.
 
Students enrolled in AMIDEAST's Education Abroad Program in Amman will have opportunities to study fascinating Middle East topics in a program based at AMIDEAST's facilities in Amman's Abdoun district. AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program courses in Amman are taught by a select group of Jordanian professors from a variety of institutions in and around Amman. These lecturers possess a strong instructional experience in English-speaking environments. All faculty members have received post-graduate degrees from North American or European universities, or have spent considerable time at English-medium institutions as students, faculty members, visiting faculty or visiting researchers.
