Summer Overseas


Arabic Overseas Flagship Summer Program

The application for the 2022 Arabic Overseas Flagship Summer Abroad is closed.

The 2022 Flagship Overseas Summer Intensive Program:

During the summer, qualified Flagship scholars travel overseas to Jordan and the Qasid Arabic Institute to attend intensive courses in Modern Standard Arabic, Arabic Media, and the Levantine dialect and to immerse themselves in Jordanian culture. The Levantine dialect course develops the participant's colloquial language skills so they can use it in daily life, with the help of a language partner who will interact with them exclusively in Levantine Arabic.

Another main component of the Overseas Summer Program is excursions and cultural enrichment; the Qasid Director organizes field trips and excursions throughout the summer, followed by presentations or research papers. Former Overseas Flagship participants have visited Fes, Casablanca, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss, Marrakesh, Asila, and the Atlas Mountains. This summer, participants in the Flagship Overseas in Jordan may have the opportunity for an official tour of Amman and Aqaba and may be able to visit such historic wonders as Petra and the Dead Sea. Participants in the study abroad program in Jordan stay in Qasid housing, just a short walk to classes and have ready access to study labs, food, and bustling city centers.

Arizona Arabic Flagship students who achieve language proficiency requirements for this program may receive competitive Flagship scholarship funding sufficient to cover a large portion of their program fees. Additionally, Arizona AFP FLAS recipients may use their FLAS to help cover program costs.

The Arizona Arabic Flagship Program encourages students to participate in intensive summer study programs. Intensive summer study helps students prepare more quickly for their mandatory Flagship Capstone year overseas. Intensive summer study also addresses the needs of students who may interrupt or slow down their Arabic learning because of other demands on their time.
