Few regions are more complicated, more globally significant and less understood than the Middle East. Home to chapters of humanity’s most ancient history and critical to its future, the region is as beautiful, mysterious, and culturally rich as parts of it are troubled.
So start exploring with CIEE. Visit Byzantine and Ottoman monuments on the Seraglio Point, or see breathtaking Petra; barter for goods at the local souk (marketplace); volunteer with local NGOs; live with a local Arabic or Hebrew-speaking family; and enjoy beaches of the Mediterranean coastline.
