Semester / Trimester
Arabic Language & Middle Eastern Studies - University of Jordan
University of JordanFall 1 2017 + Service-Learning (Sep 9, 2017 to Dec 21, 2017)
Catalog Code: IAMEF1317
This program is designed for students that are interested in participating in a service-learning program in addition to their academic semester.
You will be required to obtain a visa upon arrival in Jordan. At Queen Alia Airport, you can choose between two visa options: a 30 day, single entry visa for 40 JD (~$57) or a 90 day, double entry visa for 60 JD (~$85). The ISA Amman staff will assist you throughout the visa extension process. Please contact the Site Specialist if you have any questions regarding visas.
A highlight feature of this program is the ability to enroll in TWO Arabic courses. If a student wishes to progress through one full level, ie. Arabic 101 and Arabic 102, they may do so and earn up to a years worth of credit hours. Students cannot progress through two different levels ie. Arabic 102 and Arabic 201.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities.
Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
