Strengthen your Arabic language skills with the AMIDEAST Education Abroad program in Rabat! Students have the option of taking a blended Modern Standard and Colloquial Arabic course (8 credits) and a diverse set of area studies courses. Participants may also choose to simply take Colloquial Moroccan Arabic (3 credits) by itself, which is required. The homestay family experience gives students an intimate look at daily life and culture in Rabat, as well as the opportunity to hone their Arabic skills outside the classroom. Organized excursions span exciting locations across Morocco.
Every semester we also offer our Community-Based Learning course. This interdisciplinary course aims at strengthening students' knowledge of the Middle East through direct experience in local organizations and a series of lectures aimed at providing the theoretical framework for studying and interacting with Moroccan society, culture, and politics.
