Students in the AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program in Amman carry a 14 to17 credit hour course load per semester. All students enroll in Arabic and two or three other courses from offerings in Middle East and North African studies in a variety of disciplines taught in English. In addition to academics, our students benefit from an on-site orientation, opportunity to live with a Jordanian family, structured ways to meet local students, and organized excursions to exciting locations around Jordan. AMIDEAST prioritizes the high quality instruction of both recommended Modern Standard Arabic and required Jordanian colloquial Arabic courses to beginning through advanced learners of Arabic.  Students enrolled in AMIDEAST’s Education Abroad Program in Amman will have opportunities to study fascinating Middle East topics in English-taught 3-credit courses based at the AMIDEAST Center in Amman’s Abdoun district. AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program courses in Amman are taught by a select group of Jordanian professors from a variety of institutions in and around Amman. These lecturers possess a strong instructional experience in English-speaking environments. All faculty members have received post-graduate degrees from North American or European universities, or have spent considerable time at English-medium institutions as students, faculty members, visiting faculty or visiting researchers.

Setting Description:
Amman, capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an ancient city facing distinct modern challenges, thus making it an exciting place to live and study. Built on seven hills, Amman has expanded in size and population from a quaint sleepy town at the close of World War II, to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. Students live either with Jordanian host families or in shared apartments with other AMIDEAST students.
