Area & Arabic Language Studies in Egypt (Semester/Academic Year)
 

Egyptians refer to Cairo as "Um al-Dunya," or "Mother of the World."  Culturally and politically, it is at the heart of the Arab world; as was demonstrated during the 'Arab Spring' uprisings. AMIDEAST's programs in Egypt offer students unique opportunities to live and study in the politically dynamic and historically important and culturally vibrant center of Cairo. Classes are held at AMIDEAST's facilities in Dokki on the west bank of the Nile and students are housed in host families in Dokki.

Students enrolled in the AMIDEAST Education Abroad Program in Cairo carry a 12-17 credit hour load per semester.
