Middle East Studies Program

Home > Academics > Special Programs > Middle East Studies Program

Located in Amman, Jordan, the Middle East Studies Program (MESP) immerses students in the daily life, language, food, culture, religion and politics of one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Learn firsthand from locals how to work, play, and serve in the Middle East as you become their neighbor—and soon, their family—while learning adventurously at MESP. The heart of the Middle East Studies Program is the authentic community you’ll forge with these neighbors, families, and peers. Grounded in Christian liberal arts, MESP engages the religious culture and politics of the Middle East. You will examine the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from every perspective, live with a local family during a week-long homestay, and worship with your roommates in the morning. You will sit at the feet of native experts to learn about topics most precious to the region and then serve that region through a long-term service project. On this adventure, you will have an experienced staff and your fellow MESP students from universities across the U.S. and Canada.
