Studying Abroad in the Middle East

Throughout the 2011/2012 academic year, Gettysburg College and the local community have been exploring the Middle East through the Conflict and Resistance in the Middle East reading, film, and lecture series. During that time, Gettysburg College students have been witnessing life in the Middle East first-hand through their study abroad experience.

Five Gettysburg College students, who have recently studied abroad in Egypt, Israel, and Morocco, share their experiences through photographs, highlighting the culture and conflict in the areas where they visited.

Nathan Bigler-McCorkell ’12 - Haifa University, Israel
Catherine Daniels ’13 - American University in Cairo, Egypt
Preston Hartwick ’12 - American University in Cairo, Egypt
Ross Nichols ’13 - American University in Cairo, Egypt
Annie Valentine ’12 - Center for Cross Cultural Learning, Rabat, Morocco

When it comes to studying abroad, the opportunities are endless. In the Middle East, Gettysburg College students are able to study at eight different affiliated programs in five Middle Eastern countries, and the interest in these programs is growing.
