Akdamar Island, Lake Van, Turkey.

Classical Mediterranean and Middle East students attend a wide variety of programs, ranging from Ireland to Jordan and focusing on everything from Modern Standard Arabic to Roman architecture, from Hadrian’s Wall in northern Britain to Arab philosophy. You need to consult with an advisor from Macalester’s Center for Study Away as well as with your academic advisor in choosing the right program. Consider not just what you want to study, but how: Do you want to enroll at a local university, or study primarily with Americans abroad? Do you want a home stay, your own apartment, or the experience of a university dorm?

Visit the Center for Study Away’s “program” page for information about forms and deadlines.
