Students who are interested in Morocco can enrol in the brand-new English-taught minor ‘Culture and Society in Morocco’, which starts in September 2016 at NIMAR in Rabat. The minor is open to students of the Humanities and Social Sciences in the Netherlands.
The minor gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in Moroccan culture, which means that at the end of the three months you will be a specialist on contemporary Morocco. You will be taught by various academics from Morocco and elsewhere about Moroccan history, society, politics and more. Alongside classes, there are many excursions in Rabat as well as a five-day fieldwork trip to the Moroccan countryside.
Rabat is the capital of Morocco and is a safe and orderly city on the Atlantic coast. It is a great place to get to know North-African life. Souhaib Ben Kchouh, who followed an earlier NIMAR minor in Rabat, talks about his experience of studying in the city: ’Rabat seems like a Western city, but new experiences are not hard to find. Every day in Rabat is an adventure and there are endless cafes to discover, where you can do your homework and get to know the locals.’
