JUC Online

A Unique Opportunity

JUC has never before offered online classes, but in light of the unique circumstances that have forced us to move classes online, we have decided to open fall semester courses to our alumni network. This one-time expansion of our semester programs is a unique opportunity to enroll in JUC courses.

Any alumni who have completed a program at JUC are eligible to enroll in selected classes for credit or audit. The courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority for enrollment will go to alumni of our long-term programs and then of short-term programs. Students taking classes for credit will be prioritized over those taking them for audit. 

Why Enroll?

There are several benefits to enrolling in JUC Online this fall:

  • Live instruction

Each of our online courses will be offered with live lectures and instructor/student interaction. Students will benefit from this personalized approach, rather than watching recorded class sessions.

  • Intuitive software

Our courses are delivered through the easy-to-use Microsoft Teams platform.

  • Affordability

JUC's per-credit-hour rate is only $615, and there are no other fees associated with JUC's online courses. Our per-credit-hour rate to audit a class is only $150. 

  • Degree completion options

Starting an M.A. program online can keep a student on track to graduate in any of JUC's M.A. programs with only three additional semesters of study at our Mt. Zion campus.

  • Cultural perspective

Each of these courses will be taught from Israel by instructors who live in Israel.
