About

Students enrolled in the AMIDEAST Education Abroad Moroccan Arabic and
Culture Program in Rabat take one 3-credit course combining 35 hours of
Moroccan Arabic with ten hours of lecture/discussion in English on
different aspects of traditional and contemporary Moroccan culture.
Topics covered include the Moroccan political system, women and Islam,
Amazigh culture, linguistic diversity, and Moroccan history.  The
Colloquial Arabic portion of the course is structured to introduce
students to the local spoken language, opening doors to communication
with Moroccans.

Students in the Moroccan Arabic and Culture program live with
Arabic-speaking Moroccan host families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s
facilities in the bustling Agdal area of Rabat. The three-week program
introduces students to Moroccan Colloquial Arabic and explores the
essential elements of Moroccan cultural life. The program provides a
rich portrait of this complex and dynamic country.
In addition to academic coursework, AMIDEAST offers the following components:


  • in-country orientation

  • the opportunity to live with a Moroccan family

  • visits to historic sites in and around Rabat

  • one day excursion to a nearby city

  • transportation to Al Akhawayn University (for students enrolled in that specific program for the following semester)
