This semester/academic year program offers a diverse curriculum through direct enrollment at Al Akhawayn University (AUI), an English-language Moroccan university in Ifrane, Morocco, patterned on the American model of higher education. Students usually take 15 credits and can choose their classes from any offered in the AUI catalog.
Students will also participate in the 10-day Moroccan Arabic & Culture (MAC) Program at AMIDEAST in Rabat prior to their time at AUI. This 1-credit course includes 15 hours of Moroccan Colloquial Arabic and several activities in preparation for immersion.
The fall semester (including MAC) begins in mid-August and ends in mid-December. The spring semester (including MAC) begins in early January and ends in early May. While in Rabat, students will live with a host family; while at AUI they will live in a residence hall.
