Elena Corbett

Resident Director

Elena D. Corbett holds a Ph.D. from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. She has taught a range of courses in Middle East History, Islamic Civilization, and Arabic. Before joining CIEE as the Amman Study Center’s Resident Director in Fall 2012, she was a tenure-track Assistant Professor of History at Penn State University Erie and an instructor at the U.S. Naval Academy, where she was also the Academic Programs Coordinator for the Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies. Elena has also designed and administered several study abroad opportunities for American students in Jordan, including the inaugural year of the Critical Language Scholarship program in 2006. A specialist in the history of the modern Middle East with an M.A. in Islamic archaeology, Elena’s dissertation research focused on 19th-20th century intellectual history, and notions of communal identity in Jordan as based on engagement with archaeology and cultural heritage. She has published her work in Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism, Middle Eastern Studies, and various other print and online venues. The book based on that work, Competitive Archaeology in Jordan: Narrating Identity from the Ottomans to the Hashemites, was published by the University of Texas Press in December 2014. Elena’s next project will return her to the leftist pan-national and national movements of 1950’s-1970’s which first captured her imagination as a modern historian. She is thrilled to be the Resident Director of the CIEE Study Center in Amman, where she has spent many years living and working, and where the chance to participate on an archaeological dig brought her on her first study abroad experience as an undergraduate in 1996.

Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Study Abroad students have the option of living with a Jordanian host family or in an apartment with other CIEE program participants. Homestay placements are made on the basis of compatibility between families and students, and in some cases a suitable homestay may not be available for every interested student. Students in homestays generally eat two meals a day with their families and most meals on the weekends. Students are responsible for weekly lunches. Students selecting the apartment option need to budget for all meals, as they are not included in the program fee. All CIEE housing options in Jordan require students to make adjustments to the host culture, including curfews, limits on guests, and decorum. Apartments have limits on visitors and quiet hours for safety purposes and deference to local norms. Students receive some meals during orientation and during CIEE-sponsored excursions.

For students planning to stay for the academic year, meals between the fall and spring semesters are not included in the program fee unless they continue to reside with their homestay family.

Orientations

Orientations

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Amman before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online pre-departure orientation. Resident Staff meet with students online and share information about arrival to the site and the program, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The on-site program begins with a mandatory week-long orientation, which introduces you to the academic program and offers extensive, practical information about living in Jordan, with a focus on maintaining health, safety, and security. Ongoing support for these issues is provided on an individual and group basis throughout the program.

During orientation, you'll also take a mandatory Arabic pre-test to determine your appropriate level. You'll be retested at the end of the term and can receive word of your results while on site.

Internet

Internet

You are encouraged to bring a wireless-enabled laptop as access to computers is otherwise limited. Dongles are provided to all students for internet access along with limited pre-paid internet cards. Cafés are also a convenient and inexpensive option for internet use. Be advised that internet connections in Jordan may be much slower than what you are used to at home.

Culture

Culture

study abroad in Jordan

The academic program is supplemented with numerous cultural activities, as well as excursions to Jordan’s archaeological, historical, and natural wonders. Trips vary between the fall and spring semesters because of changes in weather. Resident Staff members will also keep you up to date on local cultural events, including films, concerts, and conferences.

Independent Travel

You may travel independently in Jordan during weekends and scheduled breaks. Travel is not permitted when classes are in session. Any independent travel outside of Jordan and overnight travel within Jordan requires the completion of the CIEE Amman Independent Travel Form and review of potential security or safety concerns by the CIEE Resident Director. You must also sign an independent travel waiver and are expected to inform your home institution and emergency contacts on all independent travel outside of Jordan.

Immersion

Cultural Activities

CIEE organizes a variety of cultural activities that complement students’ language studies. These activities give participants the opportunity to learn new skills, including Arabic calligraphy, folk dancing, and Jordanian cooking. CIEE also invites distinguished guest speakers to give talks on topics such as interfaith relations and environmental protection in Jordan. Is it up to students to take advantage of the many opportunities!

Language

As you gain proficiency in Arabic, you should use your language skills in everyday settings. This fosters a learning community that contributes to both Arabic language proficiency and understanding of Jordanian society.

Close
Academics

Academics

The CIEE Study Center in Amman offers study abroad students a series of specially designed area-studies courses in such fields as economics, history, international relations, literature, politics, and religion. Area studies courses provide an overview of issues relevant to Jordan and the broader Middle East region. Although there is no language prerequisite, all students are required to take both Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic while in Amman.

Academic Culture

This study abroad program is academically rigorous and offers focused students an opportunity to make great strides in their language and overall knowledge of the region. Students attend Arabic language courses five days per week. Area studies courses are held in the afternoons or evenings. Class attendance is required and unexcused absences count against students’ final grades. Jordanian classrooms and classes tend to be lecture style; however, instructors welcome questions and discussion. Many of the professors who teach CIEE courses have received degrees in either the United States or the United Kingdom, or have participated in fellowships abroad and thus are familiar with American classrooms.

Nature of Classes

Participants take classes with other CIEE study abroad students only.

Grading System

Grades (A-F, with pluses and minuses, based on a 100-point scale) are assigned based on mid-term and final exams, and, depending on the course, additional assignments, such as a research paper or class presentation. Attendance and class participation also are incorporated into the final grade for the program courses. Class attendance is mandatory for all CIEE classes.
