Amman, founded in 7000 B.C., the capital and largest city in Jordan, is situated in a rolling area of northwest Jordan, just twenty-five miles from the Dead Sea.
Seven surrounding hills help shape the city. Amman is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world having been home to a multitude of civilizations over the years - the Ammonites, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Nabateans and Romans, Byzantines and Umayyad Arabs.
Today Amman is a prospering modern metropolis filled with ancient ruins, art galleries, and museums. It serves as a hub within the Middle East for commerce and trade. With a tradition of welcoming refugees and immigrants from nearby countries, Amman is a multi-cultural and multi denominational city and one of the most liberal and westernized cities in the region.
The School in Jordan is based at the University of Jordan, Jordan’s oldest public 4-year institution of higher education, established in 1962. With a strong emphasis on research, and a rich background in liberal arts, the University of Jordan is an excellent host for students of all academic backgrounds.
