Curriculum

Faculty from the University of Jordan and other local institutions teach classes specifically designed for program participants. All students take a combination of language and content courses: Modern Standard Arabic (6 hours per week), Jordanian Colloquial Arabic (4 hours per week), and two elective content courses on topics specific to Jordan and the Middle East (3 hours per week, per course). All classes engage students in developing their language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), in addition to cultural exploration.  More detailed information can be found in the Course Descriptions in the left-hand menu or below.
