The American University in Cairo (AUC) is inviting applications for its 10-day ‘Discover Egypt: A Historical and Cultural Learning Adventure’programme. The university has  exclusively collaborated with BrainGain Academy, for the  programme to be held from January 11 to 24, 2020  in Cairo.. The short course will offer an immersive experience in the world of Pharaohs, mummies, religions, hieroglyphs, and the archaeology of ancient towns. With this archaeological adventure, participants will explore Egypt’s history and ancient civilizations and walk through the past, while experiencing the present in the streets of the magical city of Cairo. 

Learning will be hands-on, allowing students to understand the main social and cultural features of the region. Students will also get a crash course in Arabic that will allow them to communicate and interact effectively. It will be a unique opportunity to explore the archaeological sites including the Great Pyramids of Giza, as well as the lavish temples, and tombs in the heart of Cairo.  

At the end of the program, participants will have to work in small teams and create interactive graphics that visualize Cairo's dynamic 5000-year history. The winning team’s graphic will be used in a documentary currently being filmed by a major TV & film production company.

The deadline for accepting applications is December 20, 2019.  The fee for the program is $3,000, which includes on-campus accommodation, expeditions and field trips but excludes airfare, visa costs, meals and international travel insurance.
