Ahlan wa Sahlan!

Amman, the capital of Jordan, has expanded from a quaint sleepy town to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. As Jordan is deeply enmeshed in the international relations of the region, students may find no better place to study pressing Middle Eastern issues and Levantine Arabic.

Intensive coursework combined with daily interactions with host families help students at all levels increase their Arabic proficiency within a short period. There are 100 hours of Arabic language instruction per session, covering material usually presented in one semester on a U.S. campus. The Intensive Arabic Program is offered in two 4-week sessions, so students can choose to spend one or two months living and studying in Amman.

 

Academic Overview

  • Arabic: Blended Modern Standard & Colloquial Jordanian (6 credits)
