Program Overview

Our Middle East and Israel Studies program is for those of you keen to understand the issues and age-old challenges that face us in this region of the Middle East. 

Stimulate your curious mind with an insightful summer at one of Israel’s very best universities, examining and learning all about the Middle East, Israel and Jewish Studies. 

Get an understanding of the issues that really make this region so dynamic, through either one or two of the courses offered on this program:   

  • Is religion a decisive factor in the Arab-Israeli conflict? 

  • What is the significance of religious movements and democracy? 

  • What is political identity and how does it define Israel and its neighbors? 

  • How do modern Jews around the world identify and define themselves, and does this affect national and political identity in Israel? 

Expect some challenging and compelling coursework to guide you into understanding the key past and current affairs in the region. You’ll also take onboard insights into the important transformations taking place – culturally, politically, economically and more – in Israel and in the region. 


Program Highlights

  • Uncover the reasons behind the issues in one of the world’s most dynamic regions.
