America-Mideast Educational and Training Services

AMIDEAST (America-Mideast Educational and Training Services, a long-established US non-profit doing education and training work in the Middle East and North Africa) announced a new Honors Program in North African Studies run by its Education Abroad Programs in the Arab World. The program begins this coming fall semester and should be perfect for the kinds of students we all work with on our campuses who are interested in the Arab world. Here is the description:

The Honors Program in North African Studies combines semi-intensive Arabic language study with a research-, reading- and discussion-intensive approach under the guidance of Dr. Amal Rassam, professor emerita of anthropology at Queens College in New York.

Offered in collaboration with the American Institute for Maghrib Studies (AIMS), the Honors Program is intended for academically motivated students with a demonstrated interest in Middle East and North African studies who are prepared to undertake significant research. Participants must have completed at least one year of college-level Arabic, and preference in the admissions process will be given to students who also have some knowledge of French.

For full information about this exciting new option for students interested in studying abroad in the Arab world please visit AMIDEAST's Education Abroad website.


If you have further questions you may contact either Dr. Jerry Bookin-Weiner (AMIDEAST's Director of Study Abroad and Outreach at jbookinweiner@amideast.org or Ms. Laurie Monarch at lmonarch@amideast.org.
