Regional Studies in French (Semester/Academic Year)

 

Rabat is one of Morocco's "imperial cities," as well as its political capital. It is home to the leading educational institutions in the country and offers students opportunities to move from the shops and cafes of the "European" city to the winding alleys and exciting markets of the old medina in a few minutes' walk.

The AMIDEAST Education Abroad Regional Studies in French Program in Rabat offers a diverse set of courses taught in French on Morocco in its Muslim, Arab, African and Mediterranean contexts. In addition, students learn Moroccan Arabic and have the opportunity to study Modern Standard Arabic if they so desire. Students in the program live either with French-speaking Moroccan families or in a private Moroccan student residence hall.

Classes take place both at AMIDEAST's facilities in the bustling Agdal area of the city, close to  AMIDEAST's partner, the College of Letters and Humanities of Mohammed V University. Courses are taught by French-speaking Moroccan faculty members from the University and other universities in Rabat and neighboring cities.

Students in the AMIDEAST Education Abroad Regional Studies in French Program in Rabat carry a 15 credit hour load each semester. All students enroll in Moroccan Arabic and select other courses from offerings taught in French covering such diverse topics as Islam, Women in the Muslim World, North African cinema, the history and politics of Morocco and Morocco's relationships with its European, Mediterranean and African neighbors.

Students must have at least intermediate-high proficiency in French on the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) scale to enroll in the program. Students who wish may also enroll in Modern Standard Arabic, which is offered at seven different levels. All courses, other than Moroccan and Modern Standard Arabic, are taught in French exclusively for the AMIDEAST program, and students take classes only with other program participants.

All lectures, readings and written work in this program are in French.
