Program Overview

Program Description:

Part of our 12 for 12 for 12 programming (12 credits, 12 weeks, for $12,000), this multi-location study abroad program allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the cultural, political, historical, and economic ties between Western Europe and North Africa. Your educational adventure begins with six weeks in Granada, the last capital of Moorish Spain, followed by six week in Morocco's vibrant capital city of Rabat. While our two, 3-credit, core courses span your 12-week study, you customize your academic experience by selecting two additional 3-credit courses, one in each location.

In both Granada and Rabat, you’ll live in homestays, with a private furnished room and meals provided by your host family. While you enroll in our 3-credit core courses on international relations and communications, you’ll also customize your academic experience by taking courses in art history, African studies and more. On the weekends, participate in IES Abroad-organized cultural excursions that complement your courses and contribute to your understanding of Europe & the Muslim World. Visit the southern Spanish city of Cordoba, and take a tour of the National Human Rights Council on Rabat. All of this – and more – awaits you on this multi-location adventure.

Founded in 1950, IES Abroad is a global, not-for-profit study abroad organization with 125+ academic programs in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. To learn more about what we offer visit our website.

Setting Description:
Your study abroad adventure starts in Granada, the last capital of Moorish Spain, where you begin to explore the convergence of the Arab world and the West. An overnight field trip across the Mediterranean brings you to Morocco’s vibrant capital city, Rabat, via Tangiers and Chefchaouen. It’s here where you will continue to discover how the long, meshed histories have affected life in these two countries today.
