This program is open to students from all majors. The University of Jordan offers ISA students beginning and intermediate level Modern Standard Arabic courses. Content courses include social science, humanities, and fine arts courses related to the Middle East which will give students an understanding of Jordan specifically and the region more generally.

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.

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).
