Students who have taken Arabic at Earlham and participated in the Jordan semester abroad program have gone on to several different post-graduate opportunities. Among these are the Watson Fellowship, the Fulbright English Teaching Fellowship in Jordan, Quaker volunteer opportunities with the Ramallah Friends School in Palestine, Graduate school in the Social Sciences or the Humanities, or directly into work with groups serving displaced peoples who have migrated to the United States.

One of our students received a Watson Fellowship and followed that experience by working with a humanitarian aid group in the Levant. Another graduate is employed with a service organization working with recent migrants from the Middle East. A recent alumnus is in a Ph.D. program in Ethnomusicology.

Seek Truth(s) in the Middle East

In spring semester of her junior year Winona Hawker-Boehnke’14 went on an off-campus program to Jordan to learn more about the U.S. role in the Middle East. Earlham has about 20 off-campus programs located throughout the world, allowing students a remarkable opportunity to get more out of their education beyond just what they learn in a classroom.
