Join Carpe Diem Education and a cohort of dedicated students for a semester in Spain and Morocco. The ‘Human Migration and Language Study’ program welcomes participants ages 17 and up on either a fall or spring semester.

The student journey starts in Southern Spain, where you’ll learn about the ongoing struggles of migrants while exposed to local cultures and perspectives. In Spain you'll trek the Camino de Santiago, a spiritual pilgrimage that is designed to be as challenging physically as it is spiritually.

Students will then transition to Morocco in North Africa, where you’ll embark on a camel safari, and drop into traditional Muslim culture and language study. In Morocco you'll experience several homestays, one in a Marrakesh and the other in a remote village community to experience the full breadth of history and culture.

The entire program will be a combination of language study, cultural immersion, outdoor adventure, reflection retreat, community-based service learning, and student-directed travel.
