Program Description:

Program OverviewCIEE Amman

Amman has a history that reaches back at least 5,000 years. Despite the ancient ruins that dominate the downtown skyline, much of the city only dates back to the 1970s. Draped over several hills, Amman is a study in contrasts. A traditional downtown souk (marketplace) is a taxi ride away from massive, American-style shopping malls. It is a very accessible, cosmopolitan city with numerous museums, art galleries, theaters, and cinemas. With its reputation for security and hospitality, Amman is home to inhabitants from all over the Middle East. The city provides a safe and stable environment for students to learn about the region.

Program Focus


From an archeological survey of the country to an exploration of the long history between the U.S. and the Arab World, study abroad in Amman gives you great insight into the history and culture of Jordan and the Middle East. A course in colloquial Jordanian Arabic will help you engage more intimately with local people and develop a deeper understanding of their lives and society
