Program sponsor: CET Academic Programs
The CET Jordan: Internship program offers students a series of specially designed area-studies courses in fields such as economics, politics, international relations, anthropology, regional diplomacy, and religion. Area studies courses provide an overview of issues relevant to Jordan and the broader Middle East region. One of these courses can be an internship at a local government agency, international organization, national organization, or business. Although there is no language prerequisite, all students are required to take both Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic while in Amman.
Open to students from all majors meeting Northwestern's minimum application requirements.
None; however, students are required to take an Arabic language course during the program.
4 to 6 Northwestern units. Visit Registration & Credit to learn more about credit types and requirements, registration, and other considerations.
Students share off-campus apartments with local roommates and other CET students, providing not just a place to live, but an extension of the Arabic language classroom and a daily opportunity for cultural exchange. No meals are included, however, many supermarkets, cafés, and restaurants are within walking distance as is the University of Jordan.
Study abroad program costs vary widely and may be more or less expensive than studying at Northwestern. Review the comparison.
