Note:

  • Domestic courses take place on the sponsoring university’s local campus.
  • Study abroad courses take place on site at a partner institution in a separate country.
  • Combination courses involve both domestic and study-abroad components.
  • Academic Year Intensive courses are offered during the regular school year and require a substantial commitment of time due to the increased volume of material included in the curriculum.

Note:

Scholarship funding levels differ by program. Project GO programs do not fall under the auspices of ROTC; therefore, participants will not be on orders, will not receive per diem, and will not receive DoD-funded medical coverage as a result of participating in Project GO. However, many Project GO institutions provide living stipends for participants. Please view the “Scholarships” tabs for details.

    Textbook: Alif Baa (2nd Edition) and Al Kitaab fii Taallum al Arabiyya by Brustad et.al. (2nd Edition)
    Course Details:

    Project GO-Jordan at Marquette University offers an eight-week summer intensive Arabic language program for students at all levels in Amman, Jordan.

    You will be taught Arabic from some of the most respected language teachers in the area: from the Qasid Institute for Classical & Modern Standard Arabic. This eight-week program teaches Arabic in two four-week sessions. During each session, you will take one Modern Standard Arabic course and one colloquial Jordanian Arabic course. Classes meet five hours per day, Sunday through Thursday. In this intensive program, each session will cover the material typically presented in one semester on a U.S. campus.

    Students of all language levels are invited to participate in the program. No prior Arabic experience is necessary. Based on a placement test, you will enroll in the level appropriate for your Arabic language proficiency and earn 11-12 credits upon completion of the program. However, if you have no prior Arabic experience, we will provide a pre-departure program to guide you in learning the Arabic alphabet. Based on previous students’ feedback, knowledge of the alphabet prior to departure is essential to ensure academic success on the program.

    A Marquette academic director will be in Jordan to support you during the program. You will receive a Marquette University transcript, sent directly to your home institution. Transfer credit equivalencies for non-Marquette students will be determined by each student in collaboration with their home institution.

    Session 1  
    ARBCS 1002 Elementary Arabic 2 (4 cr.)
    ARBCS 2940 Jordanian Arabic (1 cr.)

    Session 2
    ARBCS 2001 Intermediate Arabic 1 (3 cr.)
    ARBCS 3940 Jordanian Arabic (3 cr.)

    ARBCS 1002 Elementary Arabic 2 introduces the Arabic alphabet and sound system forms. They will start developing their vocabulary, learn simple grammatical structures, and gradually listen to authentic and instructional materials that come with the textbook. The course will cover the material in Alif Baa (2nd Edition) and Al-Kitaab, Book One (2nd Edition) Chapters 1-5.

    ARBCS 2001 Intermediate Arabic 1 consolidates material learned in Arabic 101, and introduces students to more advanced and more challenging linguistic and cultural material from Al-Kitaab, Part One (2nd Edition) chapters 6-13 as well as locally produced authentic materials.

    ARBCS 2940 & 3940 Jordanian Arabic introduces students to words, expressions, and structures used frequently in everyday life. By the end of the course, students are able to ask essential questions and understand the responses, express basic facts and opinions in simple sentences, and engage in basic conversations in Jordanian Arabic with native speakers.

    As an immersion program, you will live with local Arabic-speaking families and engage in experiential learning every day while gaining an insider perspective on local Jordanian culture. You will also have the opportunity to participate in guided historical and cultural site visits throughout Jordan including Jerash, Aljoun, Petra and the Wadi Rum. You will develop the important cross-cultural skills needed as an officer.

    You will participate in a comprehensive orientation prior to departure. Upon arrival in Jordan, you will attend an on-site orientation introducing you to the program, the city of Amman, and Jordanian culture. You will meet their host family and begin living with them on the first night.

    Tuition: Fully Funded

    Acceptance into this program guarantees scholarship funding.

    Note:

    This scholarship covers tuition, airfare, room and board, health insurance, local transportation, books, transcripts, and cultural excursions in Jordan. You will be responsible for approximately $500 per month in personal expenses.

    The University of Virginia Arabic Program is pleased to announce its intensive summer language program offered through the Summer Language Institute. Learn the equivalent of two semesters of Arabic (8 credits) in an eight-week period (June 15 - August 7, 2015).

    The Arabic Program selects only experienced and caring teachers who enjoy the challenges of the program. We offer special conversation and cultural sessions, promoting the Communicative Method of language instruction.

    Why Study Arabic?

    Studying Arabic at the University of Virginia will give you the ability to communicate with more than 330 million of the world's population and prepare you for an adventure of discovery in the Arab world—a cradle of civilization and birthplace of monotheistic religions. The Arabic language also unlocks the door to a wealth of diverse literature (including fiction, science, philosophy and religion) composed over the past 16 centuries. Unlike most modern languages, after completing 200-level courses, you will be able to access texts dating back a millennium and a half!

    Whether you aspire to study Arabic for work in government and NGOs, or for higher studies in literature, religion, and political science, or simply for your own personal fulfillment, the SLI will equip you with the language skills and cultural knowledge you'll need.

    Arabic SLI Level 1 (ARAB 1016 and ARAB 1026)
    At the Summer Language institute (SLI), Level 1 students will learn Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Unlike the diversity of informal Arabic dialects, Modern Standard Arabic (fusha) is the form of Arabic common to all 22 Arab countries of the “League of Arab States” and used in modern literature, government, media, and educational institutions.

    The first half of (Level 1 – ARAB 1016) is devoted to learning the Arabic alphabet as well as the basic grammar and vocabulary needed to formulate sentences and more extended discourse. The second half of this level focuses on developing proficiency through expanding knowledge of grammar, acquiring new vocabulary and refining skills in simulated real life situations and cultural contexts.
    Please Note that this course is intended for students who have limited or no knowledge of the language. Native speakers of Arabic may not enroll in the Summer Language Institute. Non-native speakers, who have previously received informal instruction in Arabic, should consult with the SLI Arabic Program Director, Ahmad Z. Obiedat (ao7v@virginia.edu) to determine their level in the program.

    Tuition: Fully Funded

    Students interested in participating in and receiving funding for this program must complete TWO applications (one application for admittance into the program and a second, separate application for Project GO funding).

    Student Pays:
    • Airfare to Domestic Location of Study (partial)
