Travel throughout Morocco is a key component of the program. You will visit the Middle Atlas, the Jbala areas, the Southern Palm Tree Valleys, the Tinfou Dunes, Marrakech, Agadir, and Tiznit, learning about the culture, people, human rights NGOs, politics and varied geography of the country.
During these excursions, you’ll explore Morocco’s history, indigenous industries, development issues, religion, impact of tourism, civil society, environmental challenges, and cultural diversity while meeting with Amazighs and Arabs. You will have the opportunity to make observations and reflect on what you see through photographic essays, discussions with specialists, and mapping exercises.
Educational excursions will enable you to put your coursework in context and to practice new language skills with visits to markets, cultural sites, and music and theater performances.
