A Unique Opportunity
JUC is once again offering online classes for the Spring 2021 semester! This unique opportunity is open to anyone who wants to apply. This is the first time JUC has offered this opportunity to those outside of the JUC alumni community. Our spring semester courses will take place from the first week of February and end the first week of May, aside from the week of Passover when the majority of the classes will not meet (March 29-April 2).
The JUC Online application is open now! Following acceptance, JUC will contact you with your registration link. Courses will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
There are several benefits to enrolling in JUC Online this spring:
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.
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. Click here for more cost information.
- 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.
