Program Description:
Note: While you are considering in-person study abroad experience, we encourage you to explore virtual international opportunities due to travel restrictions caused by COVID-19. It is difficult to predict when in-person experiences will be available and we don’t want you to miss out on a valuable international experience that will prepare you for the globalized virtual world that awaits you upon graduation.

Intensive Arabic in Amman, Jordan (Summer)

The Summer Intensive Arabic Program in Amman, Jordan offers two 4-week sessions. All students take Modern Standard Arabic (5 credits/session) and Colloquial Arabic (1 credit/session), for a total of 6 credits per session. Classes meet five hours per day, five days per week. All levels, from Beginner to Advanced, are available.

Session 1 runs from mid-June to mid-July and Session 2 runs from mid-July to mid-August. One summer session covers the material usually presented in one semester on a U.S. campus. Students are given placement tests on arrival and placed in the level appropriate for their Arabic language proficiency.
