Program Description:
The Middle East has always played a critical and active role in the world landscape connecting East and West. When you study abroad with CIEE in Jordan, you will immerse yourself in the region’s modern history and Jordan’s role in regional politics. You will develop an in-depth, on-the-ground understanding of Middle Eastern policies and politics no history course could possibly offer. From diplomats to government officials, business owners to students and family, you will get to know individuals key to the social fabric of Jordanian society. But that’s not all. You will expand your knowledge of the local language, history and culture in addition to building your linguistic capabilities of the Arabic language; both Modern Standard and Colloquial. We believe this comprehensive approach is integral to your study-abroad experience and will include the following:
  • Intensive language courses in Modern Standard and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic
  • Courses in English focusing on culture and politics in Jordanian and the Middle East
  • Peer language assistant program to facilitate relationships with local university students, improve language skills and experience culture
  • The opportunity to directly enroll in a course at Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT)
  • Intern at a local or international NGO or business
  • In-depth tours to historically important archaeological, natural and biblical sites, such as Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and more
