- Program Description:
Meknès, known as the "Versailles of Morocco", is home to a beautiful blend of the Arab, Berber, and French cultures composing modern Morocco. The diverse and distinct districts of Meknès, such as the bustling Ville Nouvelle (modern city), labyrinthine Medina (medieval city), and relaxing plazas and green spaces speak true to the traditional Moroccan lifestyle. Due to the cultural and historic richness of this medieval city, UNESCO declared Meknès a World Heritage site in 1996 (one of eight in Morocco). With its myriad opportunities for exploration, Meknès provides an ideal setting for study abroad.
Students will take courses at the ISA Meknes Study Center, which is located in the central and dynamic district of Hamria. The study center offers exceptional academic programs taught by highly qualified local and visiting professors from around the world. Students can take courses focusing on language, politics, religion, international relations and more. Local NGO's are also based at the same facility, which offers program participants the unique opportunity to interact with organizations working to promote economic and social development in the area.
