About The Program

This exciting program offers a variety of courses including Arabic language study and diplomacy and policy studies courses. Excursions may include visits to Petra or Wadi Rum, and there are many opportunities to interact with Jordanian peers and other study abroad students. Amman’s labyrinthian downtown hosts coffeehouses, souqs and mosques central to Jordanian life. Lectures with government officials, diplomats and international experts add depth to courses. A homestay with a Jordanian family adds to cultural immersion.

Where you'll study

You’ll take courses at the Amman Study Center located in one of the city’s older neighborhoods. Just down the street is the University of Jordan where you can study, meet Jordanian students, and get supplies at the university bookstore. The study center building has multiple floors and houses language centers and restaurants. You’ll enter the building through a secure door with a reception desk just inside. The reception area has a student library, computers, and seating area where you can study or chat with friends between classes. There are many classrooms in the center to accommodate small and large groups. The surrounding area has plenty of places for dining, or you can prepare your own lunches in the center’s kitchen.
