Excursions & Travel

Though your courses give you valuable new perspectives about Jordan and the greater Middle East region, you’ll have the chance to visit historic locations in Amman and other parts of Jordan.

Past site visits have included famous architectural sites like Petra, an ancient trading city that provided an oasis in the arid land centuries ago. You will also enjoy some of Jordan’s natural wonders, including the Dead Sea, one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, and Wadi Rum, a stark, beautiful desert landscape that was described by Lawrence of Arabia as “vast and echoing.”
