Middle East Studies & Internship in Jordan



Pursue an internship that fits your skills. Interested in social justice? You can intern at an organization for refugees. Are you inspired by women’s issues? Intern at the Jordanian Women’s Union. Want to get involved in politics? We can set you up with the US-Middle East Partnership Initiative or a group that monitors local elections.

Arabic Language, Too...

You don’t have to choose between a program that focuses on language and one that offers internships…you can have both. This program runs side-by-side with our intensive Arabic language program. This means you get the best of both worlds—excellent language instruction in an Arabic-only environment, and internships plus Middle East studies electives.

Breaking Out of the Bubble

One of the hard parts of studying abroad is finding a community overseas. At CET, we set that up for you. We create a supportive network of staff, teachers, roommates, and language partners. And best of all, that network functions entirely in Arabic. You’ll have the benefit of group support, while still being able to break out of the US bubble and live like a local.
