Students may choose to study in the Arab world in consultation with Arabic program faculty. Popular destinations have included Cairo and Alexandria, Egypt; Amman, Jordan; Fez or Casablanca, Morocco, to name just a few. Some students may elect to study Arabic in U.S.-based programs, such as the summer immersion program at Middlebury College. Tufts has also successfully placed Arabic students into the prestigious Center for Arabic Study Abroad program at the American University in Cairo, and in other, similar programs.

Tufts-In-China Program

Tufts-in-China is a 4-month program (mid-August to mid-December), based at Zhejiang University, one of the top seven universities in China. With a solid curriculum and rich extra curriculum activities, Tufts-in-China has attracted over 150 students over the last decade, some of whom are gainfully and happily employed in China today.

Tufts-in-China has been successful because of the four major components of the Program, which complement one another: intensive language training, culture courses taught in English, exploring China through traveling and studying, and internship opportunities, which allow students to experience the Chinese society as active participants.
