Study Abroad

A wide variety of programs are available in the region to meet different interests and needs. Students have studied languages in Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Syria. Students have taken college courses through a variety of programs in different universities depending on their interests, with the help of their advisors and through the Bryn Mawr Study Abroad program.

A successful program demands good preparation, planning ahead, and the willingness to be flexible!

Arabic Language and Interdisciplinary Learning Program in Jordan

Students who are interested in beginning or deepening their study of the Arabic language and culture, linking it with their interest in Middle Eastern Archaeology, and/or embedding their language study within a five-week externship, should read on and consider applying for the program. Detailed program information can be found on the program webpage in the Global Bryn Mawr section.

To offer flexibility, students can choose to enroll either in the online or in-person program depending on their preferences.

  • Session I: five weeks of intensive Arabic language learning (beginner through advanced), alongside a content course on a topic related to Jordan/the Middle East.
  • Session II: a second five weeks of intensive Arabic language learning (beginner through advanced) and a content course on a topic related to Jordan/the Middle East.
  • Externship: five weeks working with a local organization in Jordan accompanied by continued Arabic language learning.
