Amman, Jordan

Study Abroad
Students participating in the summer Jordan trip learn refugee service management in the cultural and religious context of the Middle East. Participants learn the best practices in refugee resettlement with Palestinian and Iraqi populations under the United Nations Relief and Works Agency and with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Participants will also learn from Chicago resettlement programs of World Relief Services, Heartland Alliance, Interfaith Refugee Services, and Catholic Charities. This program is for graduate students in the School of Public Service.

First-year students will spend spring break in Jordan following completion of the winter quarter course, Crypts and Castles: Jordan in World History. The course uses archaeology, anthropology, and geography to uncover past and present experiences of what is now the country of Jordan. In addition to Amman, students will visit the ancient cities of Jerash and Ajlun, the desert castles of Harranah and Amra, the Dead Sea, Mt. Nebo, and the famed archeological site of Petra.
