Study Abroad in Jerusalem
While studying at the Jerusalem Global Gateway during the fall semester, students take one course at the Gateway, additional coursework through the Rothberg International School at Hebrew University, as well as have the option to take Arabic language courses with Al-Quds University. A unique feature of the fall program is the science/pre-professional track, which affords students the opportunity to take core science courses and participate in an internship coordinated by Hebrew University, a top research university in Israel. Fall semester students will also have the unique opportunity to spend Chanukah, Christmas, and New Years in the Holy Land, engaging with a rich diversity of local faiths and traditions at the most festive time of the year.
During the spring semester, students take two core courses at the Gateway. In addition, students have the unique opportunity to enroll in coursework at the Rothberg International School at Hebrew University, an Israeli institution in Jerusalem; Bethlehem University, a Palestinian Catholic institution located in the West Bank; and Al-Quds University, a Palestinian institution located in the Old City of Jerusalem offering Arabic language courses.
Jerusalem Summer Program
Students enroll in a three-credit course taught by the Jerusalem Global Gateway Academic Director. The course content is enriched by a wide variety of excursions, allowing students to experience the depth and complexity of life in Jerusalem as a site of religious, historical and political significance. Students are challenged to deepen their worldview through engagement with a wide variety of perspectives, and have the unique opportunity to visit local NGO's, meet with political and religious leaders, and traverse much of the Holy Land.
