Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Jordan: Geopolitics, International Relations, and the Future of the Middle East


Study the complex history and politics of the Middle East and learn about efforts to promote peace and global security in Jordan’s capital, Amman.


WHY STUDY INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS IN JORDAN?
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has long played a pivotal role in the geopolitics and international relations of the Middle East. Today, it is a moderate Arab state confronting modernization and the effects of regional conflicts, such as the latest refugee crisis. From the modern capital, Amman, become acquainted with the traditional values of a country with history dating back to ancient times while delving into regional politics and social change. In addition to Petra, Wadi Rum, and Mount Nebo, you’ll visit Istanbul, Turkey, and learn the extent to which Turkey is influencing the future political arena of the Middle East. Throughout the semester, you’ll improve your Arabic language skills through customized lessons in a field-based setting and participation in highly interactive conversations about the sites and communities you visit.
