The Area and Arabic Language Studies program is set in Amman:  an ancient city facing distinct modern challenges. Built on seven hills, Amman has expanded in size and population from a quaint sleepy town at the close of World War II, to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. Jordan has made great strides in education, health care and economic reform while creating a distinctively Jordanian democratic structure. Nonetheless, Jordan faces many challenges that students can study and observe first hand - the effects of regional conflicts, social change, lack of natural resources, environmental concerns, and delivering on the promise of economic development to its citizens.

Students on the Area & Arabic Language Studies program in Amman have the opportunity to study both Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian Arabic and learn first-hand from leading faculty from the Qasid Arabic Institute about the critically important Middle East region. Moreover, AMIDEAST programs focus cultural immersion and strengthening mutual understanding and cooperation between Americans and the people of the Middle East and North Africa.

Period: Spring Semester.
4.5 credits.

Program Advisor: Professor Katherine Adelsberger
