SIT Study Abroad Morocco: Migration & Transnational Identity

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs. Visit the SIT website for more details.

Using a multidisciplinary approach, enrich your understanding of migration through meetings with asylum seekers, Syrian refugees, Moroccan immigrants in Europe, and effected communities.

WHY STUDY MIGRATION IN MOROCCO?

Get an introduction to the history of migration in Morocco at the ancient Roman site, Volubilis, and the medieval cities of Fes and Meknès. From your base within Rabat’s 16th-century medina, discuss migration issues with prominent university professors and visit Moroccan and United Nations agencies and NGOs dealing with migration. In the northern cities of Tangier and Tétouan, you’ll visit African NGOs working with migrants and the border. On a seven-day stay in the Netherlands, you’ll discuss transnationalism, identity, and integration with Moroccan migrants, Dutch professors, and NGO workers.

  • Examine the historical, economic, political, and cultural roots of migration
  • Live and study in Rabat's centuries-old medina
