Learn about Moroccan culture and society while studying Arabic language and culture in the historic city of Fez. Students can study for a semester, academic year, for one of two 6 week summer sessions, or for an intensive 9-week summer session. Students will have the opportunity to explore madrasas, fondouks, palaces and 13th century ruins while living with warm and welcoming host families, and surrounded by the Arabic language. Weekend excursions allow students to travel to the imperial city of Meknes, the capital city of Rabat, the hypnotizing markets of Marrakesh and the Sahara desert.

Fez is the fourth largest city in Morocco and is located along the Atlas mountains. Fez's medina, declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1981, is one of the largest and most enduring Medieval Islamic settlements in the world.
