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. A Best Semester Program, MESP serves students from a variety of universities across the United States and Canada. For more information, please visit our website at www.bestsemester.com/mesp.
This blog serves as a place for prospective students, alumni, family, and friends of MESP to engage with and continue learning about the peoples and culture of the Middle East, a place we’ve all learned to love and call home.
