For the student with an interest in anthropology
Explore how and why anthropological research is formulated and conducted in the context of Morocco. Gain an understanding of the relationship between anthropological theory, methods, and findings and how to practice research methods. Conduct a short-term ethnographic research project throughout the program.
Fez is a 1,200 year old city; the oldest of the Moroccan imperial cities, and the religious and historical heart of the country. Fez is well-known for its beautiful architecture and bustling food scene. During your time in the city, you'll engage in guest lectures, spiritual music concerts, and cultural immersion while living with Moroccan families.
This program offers students the opportunity to learn ethnographic field methods, design and conduct a research project with Moroccan university studies, learn about the depth of anthropological research that has been conducted in Morocco—all while living with Moroccan families in the dynamic city of Fez.
