Program Description:
Hosted by: Tel Aviv University

Academic Focus:
Jewish Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, Hebrew language, Arabic language, Religion, History, Political Science, International Studies

Approximate Dates:
Fall: early August to early January (includes pre-term Ulpan course prior to the start of the regular academic semester)
Spring: mid January to early June (includes pre-term Ulpan course prior to the start of the regular academic semester)

Eligibility Requirements:
Minimum GPA of 3.0 and good academic standing. Emory College Study Abroad strongly recommends that students take one course in Jewish Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, Hebrew language, Arabic language and/or other relevant topics prior to studying abroad in Israel.

Emory students enroll in the pre-term Ulpan (usually intensive Hebrew course) for 7 weeks prior to the start of the regular academic term. During the regular academic term, students enroll in one Hebrew language course and 4 elective courses of choice (taught in English). Arabic courses are also possible, or  a Yiddish course (pre-fall only, instead of the Hebrew Ulpan, especially as an alternative for superior Hebrew speakers).

Students earn a total of 19 credits for the semester in Israel (4 credits for Ulpan, 3 credits for Hebrew language taught in regular academic term, 3 credits for each elective course).
