During the summer of 2014, Dr. Nadene Vevea and Dr. Michael Ogden offered two courses (COM 498: Advanced Intercultural Communication and COM/ANTH 351: Visual Anthropology respectively) during a faculty-led, two-week study abroad in Morocco hosted by ARAMFO (Arab American Foundation).

The group attended an international academic conference and visited cities all over the country. The tour included stops in Casablanca, Fez, Marrakesh, Ouarzazate (the “door of the Sahara”), and Tangier as well as many smaller cities en route. This photo was taken in Chefchaouen (“The Blue City of Morocco”) and won a “Best Photo” contest sponsored by ARAMFO.

For many of the students, this trip was their first time abroad and they found the experience both memorable and educational (you can visit the blog our students wrote here). Dr. Vevea and Dr. Ogden are currently planning future study abroad endeavors and would be happy to chat with you about the benefits and future study abroad options offered by the Department of Communication and Film and Video Studies programs.
