PhD Program


With the Sahara Desert to the south, the Mediterranean to the North, when you step off the plane, you will realize the vast array of languages and people that call this country home. As you get to know your students, you’ll understand they are eager to build friendships and share their lives.


This summer, we are partnering with a local language center that works with a prestigious university on the beautiful Mediterranean coast. It is run by a seasoned and vibrant staff who have been working in the MENA region for years. Your students will be adults from all backgrounds and seasons of life that are now doctorate students working to publish their scientific research papers. Teaching them conversational English will help them publish their works on an international scope.

As you get to know your students, you will realize that they are highly intellectual and open to discussing international topics such as affairs, politics, and religion. They are the future leaders in their communities and are eager to get to know their foreign teachers.
