What is the role of study-abroad programs in an Asian and Middle Eastern Studies major?
Members of the AMES faculty regard foreign experience as extremely important. At the moment the AMES Program runs a foreign study program in Fez, Morocco, for students with special interests in the Middle East or the Islamic world and, in partnership with Women’s and Gender Studies, a foreign study program in Hyderabad, India, for students with special interests in South Asia. AMES also sponsors a foreign exchange program in Seoul, Korea. The Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures offers foreign study programs in China and Morocco and an LSA+ program in Japan, and AMES majors are strongly encouraged to qualify for and participate in those programs. Students with an interest in studying other languages are invited to consult with AMES faculty to explore possibilities for integrating non-Dartmouth programs with their on-campus work.
