Universities in Meknes
ISA Meknes Study Center
Located in the modern and dynamic district of Hamria, the ISA Meknes Study center offers excellent academics with courses taught by local, U.S. and visiting professors from Carroll College. Local NGOs working to promote human rights, economic and social development operate out of the same facility, which provides a unique and exciting atmosphere for our students as they attend classes.
Students have the option to choose from a variety of course options in many disciplines such as Political Science, Middle Eastern, Gender and Religious Studies and International Relations. Courses are comprised of only ISA students, and the small student-professor ratio allows for an interactive classroom setting.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive a U.S. transcript from Carroll College in Montana. Carroll College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Additionally, Carroll College placed 1st in the US News and World Report's 2015 Regional Colleges West rankings. Carroll also is ranked 59th in the Washington Monthly 2014 Baccalaureate College Rankings (Social Mobility, Research & Service).

Service-Learning in Meknes
Participants will attend one of the following universities if they are participating in an ISA program in conjunction with their service-learning program:
Students participating in a full-time service-learning program will serve 15-35 hours per week at a local organization. All participants will develop a Portfolio throughout the program which includes reflective essays, group discussions, logs of hours, a supervisor evaluation and a certificate of completion.
Students participating in an ISA academic program and service-learning during the semester will work 5-10 hours per week at a local host organization while attending classes at the host university. The service-learning placement will begin 1-2 weeks after the first week of classes and end the week prior to final exams.
Students participating in an ISA academic program during the summer will begin their service-learning program before the ISA Summer academic program ends. Participants will spend between 15-35 hours per week at a local organization.
Participants 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.
