A Faculty-led study tour to Jordan and other destinations (itinerary changes year to year) that aims at creating intercultural and political understanding by offering a first-hand view of life in the states that students will have explored during their Middle East Studies major. With a focus on professional interaction, the itinerary includes meetings with NGOs, United Nations bodies, diplomats, media organisations and academics, as well as sites of historic and natural interest. Students will be required to reflect on their experiences during the tour and compare them to their preconceptions of the region as well as explore their career ambitions for life after university.
