In Morocco, students earn 13-16 credits from Al-Akhawayn University and The College of New Jersey for studying Arabic, taking 2-3 humanities classes, and interning 10-15 hours a week with a non-governmental organization.

These are unique opportunities to have a different kind of study abroad experience and to build your professional skillset. As you immerse yourself in another culture, you will serve as an unofficial ambassador and have an impact at a grassroots level in an area like education or human rights.
