Course Information

Haifa, Israel | 2017 Summer Sessions II & III

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.

Areas of Study Available at the University of Haifa

USAC’s partnership with the University of Haifa provides you with an array of academic offerings taught in English, as well as the option to immerse yourself in the study of Hebrew and Arabic languages.  In Session II or III, Hebrew is offered at levels from beginning to advanced. Special topics courses are offered during the July session while coursework in Arabic is available in August. Arabic language instruction focuses on Modern Standard Arabic at elementary and intermediate levels. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by the University of Haifa.
