From their first days in Casablanca, “Marhaba fii Al-Maghreb!” or “welcome to Morocco!” is a phrase ISA students in Meknès, Morocco come to know well. With such a warm greeting from enthusiastic ISA staff and Moroccan students at the Moulay Ismail University, the city’s friendly local flavor and out-of-the-way location make ISA Meknès a truly unique study abroad program.
“I absolutely fell in love with Morocco,” said Elyse Whitehead, ISA Morocco Site Specialist. “Studying abroad in Meknès during the holy month of Ramadan and fasting with my host family was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Living in an Islamic society and exploring Moroccan culture and history through my coursework and travel around the country inspired me to pursue Middle Eastern Studies more in-depth.”
Some of ISA’s most popular courses in Meknès include:
- Islamic Society & Politics
- Gender in Islam
- Arabic Language
- Darija (Colloquial Moroccan Arabic)
- The Geostrategic Importance of Morocco
- Islamic Civilization and Artistic Expression
- Peace and Conflict Resolution
