SEMESTER ABROAD
| General Information

Our semester and year abroad programs of study have been developed in hand with the M.A. programs over five decades to offer graduate and undergraduate students an advanced program of biblical history and geography, biblical language studies as well as a first hand experience of the region through a concentrated study of the culture and religions of the Middle East. Semester students travel the land from Dan to Beersheba, take field trips throughout Egypt and Jordan depending on the program of study in which they are enrolled.

Highly qualified faculty members from a variety of cultures and traditions help students learn to use the historical, geographical, archaeological, cultural and linguistic data in the interpretation of Scripture. They further the students understanding of the interplay of ideologies and customs in the political, social, and historical relationships of the Middle East.

Christian students from every continent, various cultures and many different colleges, universities, seminaries and denominations, share in a unique experience of living and studying in a student community which is as diverse as the countries that are represented.
 
| Semester Abroad

Undergraduate and graduate students who are either currently enrolled at other institutions or who have completed one year of college may study for a semester at the university and transfer applicable credits to their home institutions. Courses in the history, geography, culture, religions, and languages of ancient biblical times and the modern Middle East provide rich insights into the past and a meaningful cross-cultural experience.

Semester Abroad students benefit from taking classes developed around our graduate Master of Arts degree program.

Students come from both Consortium institutions and non-member schools.

 

Students make life long friends from shared experiences like these students at the pyramids on  the Egypt field trip.


Approximately 100 accredited colleges, universities and seminaries are members of the Consortium of Associated Schools of Jerusalem University College. Thus, students from these schools may develop a program of study which will transfer into their degree at their home institution. The schools treat JUC as an extension campus of their own institution. By prior agreement they send their students for a semester or year of studies, or for shorter intensive block studies of two or three weeks duration.
