Rabat, Morocco

In the heart of Rabat's medina, students live, learn, and explore the language and culture of North Africa. The Rabat Language & Liberal Arts Program takes students into the world of Arabic language and into the culture of Islam and North Africa, in Morocco's cosmopolitan capital city. Along with an intensive study of Arabic language, students explore the history, politics, and religion of Morocco and this ever-changing region of the world through coursework, homestays, and excursions.

The program is a perfect introduction to Arab and North African language and culture.
