Program Description:
School in the Middle East: Jordan Header

Amman, founded in 7000 B.C., the capital and largest city in Jordan, is situated in a rolling area of northwest Jordan, just twenty-five miles from the Dead Sea.

Seven surrounding hills help shape the city.  Amman is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world having been home to a multitude of civilizations over the years - the Ammonites, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Nabateans and Romans, Byzantines and Umayyad Arabs.

Today Amman is a prospering modern metropolis filled with ancient ruins, art galleries, and museums.  It serves as a hub within the Middle East for commerce and trade.  With a tradition of welcoming refugees and immigrants from nearby countries, Amman is a multi-cultural and multi denominational city and one of the most liberal and westernized cities in the region.  

The School in the Middle East-Jordan is based at the University of Jordan, Jordan’s oldest public 4-year institution of higher education, established in 1962. With a strong emphasis on research, and a rich background in liberal arts, the University of Jordan is an excellent host for students of all academic backgrounds.
