Jerusalem University College*, also known as
the American Institute of Holy Land Studies, is an extension campus in
Jerusalem for approximately 85 regionally or
professionally accredited Christian universities, colleges and
seminaries located throughout the world. JUC is also an
independent graduate degree granting institution of higher
education in Israel. Founded in 1957 as a graduate
institution, the school now provides both graduate and
undergraduate students the opportunity to study the Christian
Scriptures in the context of the land where the events occurred
as well as the languages, social and political culture,
religions and historical relationships of the Middle East.
We invite you to browse
our web site, watch the videos, take the tours, read the
comments of students and faculty and learn about Jerusalem
University College. We hope you will find, as thousands of
other Christian students have discovered, that studying in
Israel at JUC is an exciting and rewarding educational
experience of a lifetime.
The term "university college"
is used in a number of countries to denote
institutions that provide
but do not offer undergraduate degrees.
JUC offers its own graduate degrees and upper level
undergraduate semester abroad programs in partnership with the
degree programs of other
universities and colleges.
