Subject: Summer Intensive Arabic Program
Study Arabic language and Moroccan culture for an intensive six weeks
(approximately 20 June to 30 July)! This new Summer Intensive Arabic
Program is administered by the Rutgers Study Abroad Office in cooperation
with Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and The Department of Africana
Studies at Rutgers.
Spend each morning intensively studying Modern Standard Arabic in a
classroom setting in the Arabic language program at the American Language
Institute in Fez, which is located in a 19th century Andalusian home in
the ville nouvelle of Fez. Afternoon hours will be dedicated to exploring
the history and culture of Morocco, which will take you to local museums,
religious sites, and historical venues as you examine more closely the
inner workings of this ancient land. Special topic areas include Berber
language and culture, Moroccan Architecture, Sufi Music, Moroccan Economy,
Feminist Movements, Moroccan Islam as well as Moroccan Cultural Heritage
and will be presented by a wide range of guest speakers from local faculty
to community leaders.
A complete application package includes: an application, your most recent
transcript, one letter of recommendation from an undergraduate professor
and a one page personal statement. Admission is open to majors of all
disciplines. Students are selected from the various colleges of Rutgers
University and from colleges throughout the United States and Canada.
Application deadline is 15 April. Applications are accepted until the
program is full.
The courses will run five days a week for approximately six hours a day.
Examinations, written work, hours of contact, and the level of instruction
meet, in full, the standards maintained at Rutgers University.

receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift

value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
