Program Details

Embry-Riddle Project Global Officer (GO) is an intensive language and cultural immersion program provided to ROTC cadets with an Arabic language focus. The program will be hosted at AmidEast in Amman. Students will have a variety of immersion experiences including homestay accommodations and excursions to cultural and historical sites.

Students will be taught by local faculty. Classes will meet each weekday in addition to tutoring and assignments that will be required outside of the classroom. On the weekend, students will have the opportunity to participate in prearranged trips such as visiting Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and much more! Amman is both the capital and largest city in Jordan and is the economic, political, and cultural center of the country. Jordan has an immense and rich history, and sites such as Petra and Wadi Rum can easily be visited due to the small size of the country. The recent construction of a public transportation system and national railway make it easier  to travel around the country.

  • No language prerequisites are required
  • Students will reach a minimum of ILR Level 1
