Students may choose from the following Academic Program options:
The semester program in Amman is ideal for students who are looking to experience cultural immersion with the option to focus on either Arabic language acquisition or a wide variety of courses taught in English. Al-Ahliyya Amman University (AAU) offers various levels of Modern Standard Arabic. Students who have taken fewer than two semesters or three quarters of Arabic must enroll in Arabic language courses at AAU. With excursions around Jordan and cultural activities in Amman, students will have many opportunities to experience Jordanian daily life while completing their home university's degree requirements.
The ISA summer program in Amman at Al-Ahliyya Amman University (AAU) offers students the opportunity to learn Modern Standard Arabic while also learning about life and politics in the Middle East. Students will take two courses with other ISA students over a period of five weeks. Students who have taken less than two semesters or three quarters of Arabic must enroll in Arabic language courses at AAU. Excursions to Jordan's most famous landmarks are included in order to give students a more comprehensive view of Jordanian culture.
ISA Custom Programs are developed in partnership with U.S. universities to offer students unique course options.

Studying abroad with U.S. university students and faculty fosters a cohesive group dynamic with additional support of ISA staff in the U.S. and abroad.
