Studying Arabic in Morocco offers students not only the opportunity to practice daily with native speakers, but also to immerse themselves in a rich, colorful culture in the historic city of Rabat. A thriving coastal town only a few hours away from most major Moroccan cities, Rabat is the ideal location for any and all Arabic students.
Qalam wa Lawh offers Arabic classes year-round, with scholarships available for specific programs. The 14-week Academic Semester Study Abroad program is the perfect way for students to learn the Arabic language and experience the Arabic culture first-hand through a rich cultural program that includes site visits, weekend trips, language partners, and more. Students may also choose from a variety of content courses, including Gender and Society in Morocco and Political Systems in the Maghreb.
