CET Jordan: Internship


Pursue an internship that fits your skills. Want to increase access to education? Prepare activities and projects that will help children in the countryside compete for scholarships from the Near East Foundation. Is your cause environmental protection? We can pair you with Friends of the Earth Middle East, a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists.

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.

Community Approach to City Living

One of the hard parts of studying abroad is finding a community overseas. At CET, we set that up for you. You’ll walk into a supportive network of staff, teachers, roommates, and language & academic partners who care as much about your wellbeing as they do about your progress in the program. And when you’re done, our alumni network waits to welcome you home.
