Study abroad program to explore the cultures of Morocco
Students who want to travel during winter break are invited to learn more about a short-term study abroad opportunity in Morocco.
An information session for “The Cultures of Morocco” will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1 in Drexel Hall. To apply for the program, students must complete the online application and submit all required supplemental materials to the Office of International Programs by Wednesday, Oct. 15.
Led by Dr. Sally Gomaa and Dr. Chad Raymond, “The Cultures of Morocco” will run from Jan. 3-16, 2015. The course will provide students with the opportunity to explore the multiple cultural definitions of Morocco – from the seacoast to the Atlas Mountains and from the bustling cities of Rabat, Fes and Marrakesh to traditional Berber villages. This vivid backdrop will help students understand the significance of the Islamic expansion into the Maghreb, the Moorish conquests, colonization and the modernist era of independence.
The program fee is $4,550, which includes three credits of Salve Regina tuition, round-trip airfare, airport transfers and ground transportation, accommodations, one or two meals daily, official excursions and entrance fees and international travel insurance. A $1,200 deposit is due by Friday, Oct. 31, with the final payment due by Friday, Dec. 9.
