Morocco, an enchanting country with a remarkable environment, is populated by some of the world’s most hospitable people. On our Area & Arabic Language Studies Program, AMIDEAST students live with local Arabic-speaking families in Rabat, a city that is home to palaces, wide boulevards, and bustling markets.
In general, students enrolled in our Morocco program carry a 14 to 17 credit hour load per semester. All students enroll in Modern Standard Arabic, Moroccan Arabic and two to three elective courses which are offered from a variety of disciplines taught in English. In addition to academic coursework, students benefit from an on-site orientation, structured ways to meet local students, and organized excursions to exciting locations such as the imperial cities of Morocco. In the westernmost outpost of the Arab world, students learn first-hand from leading faculty about Morocco’s efforts to to address political and social issues.
