About

The Moroccan capital city of Rabat is the classroom in this interactive and engaging June three week short-term program. Known for its unique blend of African, European, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern influences, Morocco's melting pot has led to complex debates on issues throughout politics, the economy, religion, and more. Analyze and discuss such topics and leave Rabat with a deeper understanding of the ways in which this society lives.

Choose one course to take:

  • Language, Identity and Nationalism in Contemporary Morocco

  • Postcolonial History of the Maghreb: Issues and Debates

  • Social Movements in the Middle East and North Africa

Site visits and guest speakers bring lectures and course discussions to life as expert local professors lead the class through these captivating interdisciplinary topics. All courses are taught in English and are four credit hours each.

Each student is carefully paired with a homestay to share daily life with a local host family. All placements are made in the medina, the historical city center of Rabat and all meals and weekly laundry are included.

Outside of class, take part in a diverse set of cultural activities and events such as a day trip to Casablanca, a Moroccan cooking workshop, and a Moroccan drumming lesson.
