About the Location

Cairo is Egypt’s sprawling capital, set on the mighty Nile River. The city’s metropolitan area is the largest in the Middle East. Cairo is also known for its rich history, striking architecture, political scene, and vibrant culture. At the city’s heart is Tahrir Square and the vast Egyptian Museum—featuring a trove of antiquities including royal mummies and gilded King Tutankhamun artifacts. Nearby Giza is the site of the iconic pyramids and Great Sphinx, must-see phenomena dating back to the 26th century BC.

The College of New Jersey graduate program in Cairo is held at Misr American College, 20 Tunis St., 6th District, New Maadi, Cairo, Egypt.
