The program offers the opportunity to explore both the modern and the ancient. The program is situated in Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan, “The City That Never Sleeps,” widely ranked as one of the world’s most attractive tourist destinations. Tel Aviv offers beaches, clubs, restaurants, and museums. A forty-five minute, inexpensive bus ride brings you to Jerusalem, the site of the Old City, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Via Dolorosa, and Garden of Gethsemane. Day trips take you to the King Herod’s fortress atop Masada, the lowest spot on the Earth’s surface at the Dead Sea, the fishermen by the Sea of Galilee, the cool waters of the Jordan River, the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the snorkeling beaches and night life of Eilat, and the lost city of Petra in Jordan. A two-day trip takes you to the tombs of the Pharaohs outside of Cairo or the coastal intrigues of Cyprus.
Reasons to Study Abroad in this Program
"The classroom was conducive to a small, intimate class and I felt as though we could be free to discuss our thoughts openly."
