The three-week J-Term program will start with two days of orientation including culture, safety and security, a drop-off activity, and an Amman city exploration tour. Students who were not enrolled in the online term of this program will have a written and oral language placement test during the orientation. The content of the term will be delivered through in-class lessons, field assignments, homestay activities, and excursions.
You’ll strengthen your Arabic language studies while living with a homestay family in Amman and immersing yourself in local culture. You’ll put your language skills to use in field-based settings and go on a three-day excursion to Jesus’ baptism site, the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum. You will complete your midterm and final exams and final project presentation during the in-country program.
