Program Description:
We are sorry to report that Dartmouth is not currently offering an Arabic language FSP.  The Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures is in the planning stages of a new program, but does not currently have one in place.  Please check in with the department chair, James Dorsey, if you have any questions.
 

The Arabic FSP will use the facilities of both the Tangier American School (TAS, http://www.theamericanschooloftangier.com/) and the Tangier American Legation Institute Museum (TALIM, www. legation.org). TAS has a large and beautiful campus in the modern city which includes the use of a residence hall and classroom facilities for our program. The Tangier American Legation Institute Museum (TALIM), located in the medina, has an excellent English-language library for North African studies, and frequently serves as a conference and cultural center. With both TALM and TAS, we will have magnificent program space in both the modern and ancient parts of the city.

Students take three courses in Tangier: Arabic 31 and 32 (Advanced Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Moroccan Arabic), and Arabic 11 (Director's Seminar, "Religion, Reason, and Reform in Morocco" cross listed as Anthropology 50.2).

For ten weeks, the students will be in Arabic class for three hours a day, five days a week. There will be two sections of each language class, with approximately eight students and four local Arabic teachers. Students will also sign a language pledge to ensure that they speak Arabic at all times during the program. The language pledge will be reinforced by the residence structure of student housing: students will live in a dormitory with two Morocco graduate student tutors, who will arrange for speaking activities and ensure the maintenance of the language pledge.

The Dartmouth Arabic Foreign Study Program is held in Tangier, Morocco during the fall term. The FSP offers two credits in Modern Standard Arabic at the advanced level (Arabic 31 and 32), in addition to one credit for Arabic 11, a seminar taught by the program director in residence, and an introduction to Moroccan Colloquial Arabic. Students will also participate in regularly scheduled cultural trips, cooking and music lessons, lectures on Morocco, and meals with Moroccan families. For application and further information, please contact the Off-Campus Programs Office, 44 North College Street.
