Academic Standing by Program Start: Sophomore or above

Program Overview

The Advanced Arabic Language program is designed to give you the opportunity to take a full load of courses taught in Arabic by combining intensive language study with area studies courses. By doing so, you will develop a high level of proficiency in Arabic and a better understanding of important issues facing Jordan and the Middle East today.

This program is academically and linguistically challenging and requires a solid commitment on the part of students. Classes are small, often taught tutorial style, and require discipline and sustained effort both in and outside of the classroom. Instructors are native Arabic speakers, trained in their fields and teaching Arabic language. During the Advanced Arabic Language Program, you will take part in the CIEE Community Language Commitment by speaking Arabic at all times (except in emergencies). This fosters a learning community that contributes to both Arabic language proficiency and understanding of Jordanian society.
