I gained a lot of new friends and new knowledge. I made friends from 3 other US states, Tunisia, and the UK. These are people I will stay in touch with, too. I learned a lot of Arabic, and through talking to people, broke out of my comfort zone and became a more confident person in general. - Ohio State University - Columbus View Entire Review

About

This program has a front-loaded, 15 contact-hour crash course in Tunisian Arabic, together with AMIDEAST Education Abroad's Community-Based Learning (CBL) course, a 45 contact-hour course about contemporary Tunisia that helps students contextualize their worksite experiences.

To complete the experience, students will have a work placement of approximately 150 total hours with a Tunisian organization specialized in a field related to Tunisia's post-revolutionary social, economic, and/or political life. Placements are available in English, French, or Arabic.

*Applicants should indicate three fields of professional/academic interest for potential worksite placements and submit a resume or CV.  AMIDEAST does not guarantee placement in a first choice or particular field of interest, nor with any particular organization.  AMIDEAST does its best to match participants with a worksite partner whose mission and workload closely aligns with students’ learning and experiential goals for participation in the program.
