You will receive individualized support from ASA’s advisors and staff throughout your program application process, while you are abroad, and when you return.

Before you depart we will work with you and the staff at your home institution to help you prepare for your time abroad. We are happy to speak with you to discuss ways you can maximize your experience in your host country. You will also receive a detailed pre-departure orientation guide which will help you know what to pack, what to expect when you arrive, and how to stay safe while abroad.

Our intentionally small group sizes allow ASA’s students to get to know one another and are an aspect of our programs for which our alumni consistently express their appreciation. You will have opportunities to meet other students and lots of new people through your classes, social events and optional language partners.

ASA programs include excursions, volunteer opportunities, housing, meals, academic credits, transcripts, airport pick-up on arrival, medical insurance and more! Contact ASA or your advisor to learn about ASA’s Price Guarantee for all of our programs.

The Religion, Art, and Architecture trip is designed for students interested in an academic and cultural experience in Morocco, Gibraltar, Spain, Turkey, and Israel. The program is a comparative study of the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  It examines the religions’ shared aspects, as well as distinct elements. The three religions will be compared and examined in the way they impact the modern West and the Middle East specifically.  Special attention will be given to the city of Jerusalem, where students will study and explore Jewish, Christian, and Islamic holy sites.

Cities/Sites Visited: Marrakesh, Fez, Casablanca, Rabat, Sevilla, Granada, Córdoba, Gibraltar, Istanbul, Jerusalem.
