| Introduction to the Faculty

At Jerusalem University College, we believe that our faculty is top-notch! Not only is each member of our faculty an expert in their chosen field, but more importantly together they bring a unique mix of talents and insights to our curriculum that helps our students discover, know and integrate these areas of study in meaningful and holistic ways. Simply put, our faculty is unmatched, and helps us fulfill our unique mission to the evangelical Christian world.


From our beginning in 1957, our educational goal has been to expose non-Israeli, evangelical graduate and undergraduate students to the land and peoples of the land of the Bible. One of the most important ways that we do this is to rely almost exclusively on local faculty. Our courses are taught by Israelis, by Palestinians and, in some cases, by expatriates who have been residents in the land for many years. In every case, these men and women are experts in the fields covered by the curriculum of JUC, and live and breathe their own subject matter, first-hand. The majority either have had, or continue to hold, teaching positions and professorships at other institutions in Israel and/or in the Palestinian territories, while teaching courses and working closely with our students at JUC. We aim to expose our students to a wide variety of voices that represent the spectrum of life in Israel, voices that speak passionately, yet fairly, about matters at hand. The members of our faculty who are Christian are able to help students understand and integrate what they are learning in a Christian context.


In addition to members of the Long-Term program faculty, the following are among the more recent instructors who have taught in our intensive short-term programs of two and three week duration:
