SPECIALLY ARRANGED PROGRAMS
| Special Programs:  credit or non-credit

Our specially arranged short-term programs of study are quite different from typical "Holy Land" Tours. We are an academic institution not a tourist agency. Our programs have been developed over five decades of experience in the land.  Our programs visit sites not normally viewed by typical holy land tours.  Daily hiking can be rigorous and sustained in rugged terrain. Participants must be in excellent physical condition.  Special programs can be designed to be more or less rigorous according to your groups needs.

Most of the coursework for our short-term programs is done on-site, in the field. Prior map work and classroom discussions provide the necessary context for field-work.
 

Students prepare their camels for the trip into the western desert.

 
We arrange and run special programs for groups throughout the year.  Planning for these needs to begin well in advance.  If you and your group cannot attend one of the six regular programs scheduled, the university college will tailor a program to meet the specific needs of your group (dependent on adequate size). You may desire dates other than the regularly scheduled two and three week programs or a special itinerary. Choose from one of three existing itineraries or tailor one especially for your group.  See Related Information for sample regular program itineraries.

Specially arranged programs may be for-credit or not for credit.  All of our for-credit programs require that each student successfully complete map work, examinations and written reflections on regions visited. Course instructors are far more than "licensed tour guides" but academically qualified members of the faculty of Jerusalem University College or its associated schools, with specialties in the geography, history and archaeology of the lands of the Bible.

Please refer to Related Information at the bottom of the page for application forms, program dates, entrance requirements, faculty qualifications and information about adding a Jordan or Egypt component to your special program.

If you are ready to begin the process of creating a Special Program, please contact Admissions or the Program Coordinator at the NA Office.
