Overall Experience
I learned about Morocco's history and political landscape, as well as methods of conducting research. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
To always come with an open mind and willing to share - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Seeing as SIT does so much traveling, I was really able to see other parts of the country in a way that I didn't with my previous study abroad program. It left me wanting to see even more of Morocco and explore these on my own next time. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a ton and I do think it was very worthwhile for me! Language, communication, politics, learning about another culture, confidence somewhere new... What you learn on this program is endless. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and learning how to be patient. Also, just in general a greater understanding of Morocco and cultural differences. It made me push myself outside my comfort zone and helped me open my eyes to so many things. It was absolutely worth it. - Providence College View Entire Review
You cannot underestimate a study abroad experience. It made me more self sufficient and prouder of what I was capable of doing. It made me more interested in internationalist and languages and being culturally savvy. It changed my future plans in the sense that i'm rethinking doing international politics, and i'm going to stu... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I wanted to do something completely different and be challenged on my abroad experience, and that is what I got. I gained a broader world perspective and greatly increased my appreciation for being born American. - Tufts University View Entire Review
See above. Absolutely worthwhile. - Carleton College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: Morocco - Migration and Transnational Identity
I learned that it’s important to appreciate the place where you are. Sometimes we don’t realize that maybe we won’t be back to the place we grew so much, so we have to live every moment as it were the last. I also learn that every culture has its own flavor, and even though some practices aren’t understood, we have to respect t... - Knox College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and gained context to compare lifestyles I hadn’t experienced before - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile. I gained a much more critical perspective on the US and on Americans (and I already had a critical perspective). I learned too much to even begin to pull together in this box. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I have never been so aware of my identity as a female because of the strict gender roles, numerous street comments every time you walk down the street, and the way I was treated by male informants during my research process. I learned so much about Islam and the situation in North African countries. I learned so much about m... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
It was worthwhile. Despite frustrations, it challenged me in new ways, helped me grow, and gave me more confidence to travel to different places around the world. I learned more about the Moroccan culture and people than I ever thought I would know, and I'm grateful for this experience. Plus I made some great friends while I was... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes, very worthwhile. My Arabic improved a lot, I made some really good friends, got to know many Moroccans, saw a lot of the country, traveled independently, and overall had a fun, stimulating, beneficial experience. - Tufts University View Entire Review

About

Using a multidisciplinary approach, enrich your understanding of migration through meetings with migrants, local NGOs, international institutions, and effected communities in Morocco and the Netherlands.

Get an introduction to the history of migration in Morocco at the ancient Roman site, Volubilis, and the medieval cities of Fes and Meknès. In Rabat, discuss migration issues with prominent university professors and visit Moroccan and United Nations agencies and NGOs dealing with migration. In the northern cities of Tangier and Tétouan, you’ll visit African NGOs working with migrants and the border with Spain, where sustained undocumented migration takes place. On a seven-day stay in the Netherlands, you’ll discuss transnationalism, identity, and integration with Moroccan migrants, Dutch professors, and NGO workers. You will also spend a day with a Moroccan-Dutch community in Amsterdam. You will have the option of either interning with an organization focused on issues related to migration or carrying out an independent research project.
