The hybrid semester combines faculty, Arabic instructors, expert guests, host community exchange partners, opportunities to engage in community-based learning, and staff from Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, and Jordan. All courses are designed to foster collaboration among students onsite and in the virtual environment. Cultural exchange is embedded in each course and binds each program component together. The semester will be available as a whole and therefore constitute a discrete cohort, with individual courses and limited combinations of multiple courses open for enrollment to participants not enrolled in the full semester.
Students will have the option of taking:
Full semester (14-17 credits, inclusion in cohort activities)
11 credits (8-credit Blended Arabic course plus any 3-credit course, inclusion in semester cohort activities)
6 credits (any two 3-credit courses, inclusion in semester cohort activities)
One 8-credit Blended Arabic course
One 3-credit course
The following courses will be offered:
Arabic: Blended Modern Standard & Colloquial (8 credits) is recommended
Colloquial Arabic (3 credits)
Elective Area Studies Courses (3 credits each) taught in English in a variety of disciplines.
Media Arabic (3 credits) is available as an elective
Cohort Course (must be taking at least 11 credits)
Faculty from Jordan, Morocco, and Egypt will be teaching these courses, with guest lectures by faculty in all locations, including Tunisia. Students will be able to take Arabic and Area Studies courses either as a full semester or can choose to supplement their other coursework with individualized options. VIRTUAL CULTURAL EXCHANGE All of the courses offered as part of AMIDEAST Education Abroad's online program will include fully integrated and meaningful cultural exchange with faculty and students from Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, and Tunisia. From language partners in Arabic to virtual placements in our Community-Based Learning course, students will not only take classes, but work on collaborative projects with a host community from the Arab world.
