- Fly to Dumfries over spring break and carry out their project.
This program, offered in Maymester, provides an immersive experience with some of Morocco’s top researchers, producers, and policy makers. Students will travel from the Atlas Mountains down to the Sahara Desert to conduct a comparative analysis of the current cultural and industry trends shaping agriculture, community, and organizational development in Morocco.
This Morocco experience requires no prerequisites and is open to all majors and graduate students. This interdisciplinary program will allow you to interact with the people and their diverse cultures; explore the public policies that are addressing the country's 21st Century challenges; and experience the agricultural production, which employs about 40% of the nation's workforce.
