Globally engaged. Critically acclaimed. Biblically based.

For over 60 years, Jerusalem University College has offered graduate and undergraduate study programs that engage the biblical text, explore its multi-faceted context, and maximize the rich educational resources of Jerusalem.


We've got History in the Holy Land

Our founding president, Dr. G. Douglas Young, envisioned a graduate-level educational experience in which students would study the Bible in the land of the Bible among the people of the Bible.

Over the years we have added the M.A. degree, an undergraduate semester abroad program, and a variety of intensive, short-term programs.
