Program Description:


Morocco, a developing nation, is a Muslim country located on the far Western tip of North Africa. While the country strives to preserve its historic traditional crafts in rug weaving, wood carving, and mosaic art, it is also seeking to improve through modernization the socio-economic welfare of its citizens. While student project work and educational travel will be conducted throughout Morocco, the project center is based in Rabat, the grand capital of the nation founded in 1146.


Projects address issues of water conservation and alternative agriculture in the Middle Atlas countryside, promoting eco-tourism, developing the artisanal industry in textile weaving and mosaic tiles, restoration of historic Kasbah in Fes and Rabat and Roman ruins at Volubilis, financial support for orphans.

All students take an intensive course on the Arabic language.
