Jordan-ProjectGOTHE PROGRAM

Marquette’s Project Global Officers (GO) is part of a national effort sponsored by the Defense Language Office and National Security Education Program. Project GO promotes critical language education, study abroad experiences and intercultural communication skills for ROTC cadets/midshipmen. Up to 16 cadets/midshipmen will study in Amman, Jordan, for an eight-week intensive program. This innovative Arabic language and cultural program will enrich your worldview while preparing you for your post-graduate military experience.
 

THE CITY

Nestled into the hills between vast deserts and the fertile Jordan Valley, Amman, Jordan, is a diverse city that offers something new for you to discover daily from historical landmarks to modern boutiques. You will participate in guided historical and cultural site visits throughout Jordan such as Jerash, Aljoun, the Dead Sea, Petra and the Wadi Rum.

ACADEMICS

Orientation
You will participate in a comprehensive orientation prior to departure. Upon arrival in Jordan, you will attend an on-site orientation to introduce you to the program, the city of Amman, and Jordanian culture.

Courses offered
You will be taught Arabic from some of the most respected language teachers in the area: from the Qasid Institute for Classical & Modern Standard Arabic. This eight-week program teaches Arabic in two four-week sessions. During each session, you will take one Modern Standard Arabic course and one colloquial Jordanian Arabic course. Classes meet five hours per day, Sunday through Thursday. In this intensive program, each session will cover the material typically presented in one semester on a U.S. campus.
 
Students of all language levels are invited to participate in the program. No prior Arabic experience is necessary.
Based on a placement test, you will enroll in the level appropriate for your Arabic language proficiency and earn 11-12 credits upon completion of the program. You will receive a Marquette University transcript, sent directly to your home institution. Transfer credit equivalencies for non-Marquette students will be determined by each student in collaboration with their home institution.

HOUSING

There is no better way to develop an understanding of a culture than to interact with diverse groups of local residents and speak with them in their language. Through living with a local Arabic-speaking host family, you will learn Arabic language and culture directly from Jordanians. You will develop the important cross-cultural skills you will need as an officer.

SCHOLARSHIP

All ROTC cadets/midshipmen (contracted or non-contracted) accepted into the program are guaranteed full scholarship funding. This scholarship covers tuition, airfare, room and board, health insurance, local transportation, books, transcripts and cultural excursions in Jordan.

Monetary Incentive: Check with your respective military branch to learn more about the financial benefits available for studying a critical language.
