Jerusalem is well known for its abundant historical and holy sites as well as its reputation as a thriving modern metropolis. Religiously significant to Judaism, Christianity and Islam, it is a city where the past meets present in everyday life. The city is rich in art galleries and museums, theaters and concert halls, restaurants and dance clubs and plays host to international conferences, sports competitions and festivals throughout the year.
Hebrew University is considered one of the most academically prestigious institutions in the world known for cutting edge research and for providing a challenging multidisciplinary education. Founded by such luminaries as Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, and Martin Buber, Hebrew University has a student population of 24,000 studying at four campuses and hosts over 1,500 international students each year.
Dickinson students studying at Hebrew University have three academic program options. Each program begins with an ulpan, a one month intensive Hebrew language program, prior to the start of semester.
The Rothberg International School offers courses in Judaic, Israeli and Middle Eastern studies as well as Brain and Behavioral Sciences and Environmental Studies. In addition to modern Hebrew, students may also study modern standard Arabic and colloquial Arabic at various levels. Students with sufficient language skills are encouraged to direct enroll in at least one course taught in Hebrew at the university. Students also have the opportunity to conduct an independent research project or participate in an internship program. Students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA to apply.
Spring in Jerusalem is a joint initiative between Harvard University and Hebrew University and is designed for juniors and/or seniors interested in studying with Israelis in advanced level coursework, taught in English, within departments at Hebrew University. Students participate in a winter ulpan then continue their studies in the spring semester with two advanced course offerings taught in English by Hebrew University faculty. Students also have the opportunity to conduct an independent research project or participate in an internship program. The program also features exclusive excursions and meetings with community leaders designed to enhance their coursework and learning. Students must have a minimum 3.5 GPA to apply to this honors program.
Dance Jerusalem is a unique opportunity for students to study at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and Hebrew University's Rothberg International School. The program combines university-level artistic training in dance and academic courses in a wide range of courses taught in English. Admission to this program is competitive and students must audition for a placement.Excursions
The Office of Student Activities at the Rothberg International School provides a full-range of activities for study abroad students including seminars, cultural and social events, clubs and holiday celebrations. Tours are also arranged by the office and are available to all students.
Students are housed in the modern Scopus Student Village adjacent to the Hebrew University campus. Students live in a single bedroom in a four bedroom self-catering apartment and share a living room, kitchen and bathroom. A supermarket and laundry facilities are available a short distance from the apartment. Students will receive a board credit of $2440 on their Dickinson student account in lieu of a board plan in Israel. It is expected that you will use the excess money available to you for your food expenses while studying abroad. Please note that no routine food stipends will be dispersed in Israel; you must plan to have access to these funds for your food purchases while studying abroad.
