Program Overview

Program Description:
Global Learning Across Borders' Morocco semester program aims to deliver an intense panoply of cultural and geographic experiences over the course of three months. From "souq" (market) to Sahara, "medinas" (old preserved medieval cities) to Atlas Mountains, ocean to oases--we take in the natural beauty of the country, its rich history, and its varied inhabitants. Fes, Marrakech, Rabat, Chefchaouen, Tangier, Essaouira, and Casablanca are among the cities that will be visited and explored.

Courses in Moroccan Arabic, French, Moroccan Culture & Society, Introduction to Islam, Berber Culture, and Anthropology will give your daily rhythms meaning and context. Homestays with Moroccan families will allow you--and them--profound insights and understanding. And Independent Study Projects will allow you to research a segment of society/culture of particular interest, be it French, Islam/Sufism, Musical Traditions, Architecture, Moroccan cuisine, or artisanal traditions such as woodworking, tile-making, or pottery.

Intense cultural immersion in a traditional, Arab, and Islamic society that is accessible and welcoming to western travelers. Morocco represents the ideal setting to study and practice Arabic and/or French, witness the diverse nature of Islam, experience legendary craftsmanship and music, and become acquainted with people of legendary hospitality.
Setting Description:
A mere 17 miles south of Europe, across the Strait of Gibraltar, a very different experience awaits -- an intriguing place of great contrast, color, culture, history, and hospitality.
Cost:
$13,295, excluding international airfare.
