CIEE: Language and Culture in Amman

Amman, Jordan



The Language and Culture program in Amman, Jordan, offers a truly Jordanian experience through intensive language study and cultural activities and excursions. The city of Amman provides a fusion of historical traditions with a modern landscape and lifestyle. Youwill enroll in courses at Princess Sumaya University of Technology, which is known as a center of educational excellence both in the country and the surrounding region. You will typically enroll in four courses during your semester abroad, including two language courses and two area studies courses, or one area studies course and an internship. In addition to coursework, you will enjoy many excursions to Jordan's archaeological, historical and natural wonders, as well as participate in an overnight trip to Petra and a community service trip in rural Jordan. You have the option of living with a Jordanian host family or in an apartment with other CIEE program participants.

Program budget

Consult the affiliate program website for a current budget.

Students on most MU affiliated programs are billed for 13 MU credit hours for a semester (six for summer) according to the regular MU billing schedule. Regular MU tuition is paid directly to MU, and then is forwarded by the International Center to the affiliated program sponsor on the student's behalf. Non-Missouri resident students are assessed non-resident tuition fees, which are not forwarded to the affiliated program. Students pay any costs beyond the MU educational fees directly to the affiliated program sponsor. For more information, see the Affiliated Program Billing Worksheet.

Financial aid information

If you are awarded financial aid for study abroad, it will be applied to your MU account according to the regular financial aid disbursement schedule. Reminder: You must be enrolled in study abroad and have completed the required financial aid forms for study abroad in order to be considered for aid.

Because non-resident tuition charges apply, MU students should be eligible to use non-resident scholarships toward program costs.
