The Year of Morocco seminar abroad program will provide an immersive, global learning experience that will help broaden the worldview and increase the intercultural competence of students. This seminar will introduce students to the vibrant diversity of peoples, cultures, traditions and modern complexities of Morocco by visiting a variety of community organizations, academic institutions, businesses, museums, and religious sites, in both rural and urban settings. Students will develop a holistic understanding of Morocco and gain a greater appreciation for cultural diversity and global interdependence through reflection and analysis of issues of local and global importance. A major focus of the spring semester course will be the topic of “Gender, Identity and Youth Empowerment.” Accompanied by experienced faculty, student participants will interact with faculty, staff and students from Hassan II University Casablanca and al Akhawayn University in Ifrane.
