Travel to the Middle East/North Africa with OCC!
The Study Abroad in MENA (Middle East/North Africa Region) Travel Seminar (HUM 251) provides an unforgettable immersion into the cosmopolitan culture of a highly westernized, Muslim majority nation. Students will live and eat most meals with host families, experiencing Islamic culture from the inside. They will attend daily Arabic/Hebrew Language lessons as well as lectures on topics relating to immigration, human rights, women’s rights, minority rights, and issues of Muslim/Jewish identity. There will be guided tours of major cities; musical performances and art exhibitions; visits to mosques, synagogues, and museums; and special lunches at excellent pre-selected restaurants as well as a “weekly souk” activity.
This seminar is offered with support from a US Department of Education Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Program Grant.
The travel portion of this seminar is scheduled over OCC’s Summer Session I. Students will earn four credits and participate in a course (Morocco: Language and Culture) that meets both Humanities and Diversity requirements, and relates to the Middle Eastern Studies Certificate program that has been established at OCC. Members of the community are welcome to participate on a non-credit basis.
