Featured Program

Study Abroad in Jordan over Spring Break!

Jordan is a fascinating country rich in tradition yet modern at the same time with Amman as its cosmopolitan capital. A land of several cultures and religions, Jordan is also home to numerous UNESCO world heritage sites such as desert castles, Wadi Rum Valley and Desert and of course, the 3000-year old city of Petra carved in stone that is a must-see for all world travelers.  Jordan is an essential hub of diplomacy for the Arab world.

This course will explore Jordan from north to south in all its historic splendor and physical beauty, as well as give the student insights on the cultures, history, politics, and gender relations in this unique country.

During the course, students will enjoy in-depth visits of Amman, Jerash, and Madaba, and in conjunction with the University of Jordan, will have the opportunity to meet with several guest speakers such as Bedouin women activists who promote equality for women in Wadi Rum, as well as with diplomatic representatives for Jordan who work with issues of peace and justice in the region. Students will study and tour with locals the major religious sites in the Dead Sea region and the Roman ruins of Jerash, spend the night in Bedouin tent cities in Wadi Rum and in Petra as residents discuss with us their lifestyle and how it has changed over the last few centuries, and explore the history of the Nabatean dynasty first hand. This is a course from which students of all majors can benefit as we go beyond the typical tourist route to understand Jordan inside and out.

To learn more about this course and other faculty directed study abroad options, contact the Office of Education Abroad at studyabroad@case.edu or visit our website at www.case.edu/studyabroad.
