 Study Abroad in Morocco


Exotic yet contemporary Rabat is the seat of government and port gateway to North Africa’s fabled locales including Casablanca, Tangier and the Saharan desert. The multilingual, academic setting lends itself to studies of modern Moroccan politics, culture and religion in relation to the Arab world and the West. You may also volunteer with NGOs, women’s groups, schools and government agencies.

Cultural group trips to places like Fez, Marrakesh, the ancient ruins of Chellah, Andalusian Gardens and Kasbah Mosque are included to augment class studies, while homestay housing with a Moroccan family gives you a glimpse into life as a local resident. Whether you are sipping tea at a local café, wandering through ancient markets, or enjoying a day at the waterfront, this is a fantastic program for sampling the local life.
