FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AMIDEAST Education Abroad is excited to continue to offer several scholarship opportunities for Spring 2014 program applicants! To kick off our new Muscat, Oman Area & Arabic Language Studies Program, AMIDEAST will be offering special scholarships for applicants to this program.
We are excited to announce that we will be awarding several special $2,000 need-based scholarships for participants on the Area & Arabic Language Studies Program in Muscat, Oman. Awards will be made in the form of a program fee reduction.
AMIDEAST is excited to announce a new course offering, Art and Politics in the Arab World since 1970 (ART 370), on the Area & Arabic Language Studies Program in Amman, Jordan.. The course will focus on three different contemporary time periods; Post Arab-Israeli war of the 1970’s, Post Lebanese Civil war in the 1990’s, and the Egyptian “revolution” from 2011 to present day. Considering mainly the Levant and Egypt, this course will explore the non-traditional contemporary arts that are used for political expression. Throughout the course, emphasis is given to visual arts, urban music, political cartoons, street art, and poster productions.

AMIDEAST is proud to announce that we have launched a semester program in Oman. Applications for the Spring 2014 semester in Muscat are now being accepted.
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that we have officially decided to cancel the AMIDEAST Egypt Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 programs. In order to offer students an additional location to study abroad, we have accelerated existing plans to launch a semester program in Oman starting in the spring of 2014. This Area & Arabic Language Studies Program will be held in Muscat, and it will follow a similar format to other AMIDEAST Area & Arabic Language Studies programs in Jordan and Morocco.
AMIDEAST Education Abroad is excited to announce our Fall 2013 Blog Abroad Correspondents. Two students have been selected to write about their semester studies and adventures in Amman, Jordan and Rabat, Morocco.
