Jerusalem University College

The Messiah College International Risk Management Committee temporarily has suspended Messiah participation in this program due to escalating safety concerns in Israel.

Walk the streets where Jesus walked as you study the Bible and Middle Eastern cultures at JUC, located on Mt. Zion, within short walking distance of the Room of the Last Supper and the Old City of David. Course offerings help students explore the Bible in terms of archaeology, geography, history, and languages.  Ministry opportunities abound in JUC, and local congregations welcome students to their worship services.

Note: Messiah students should not enroll in HIST 5/335 Ancient Egypt and the Biblical World at this time due to instability in Egypt.

Additional information is available at Jerusalem University College.

This program is currently approved for semester-long programs. Students wishing to study at JUC over the summer or during J-Term  may apply directly to JUC, independent of Messiah College.

"I was thrilled to find that the land of the Bible is real and tangible. My faith will never be the same, since I also came to find Jesus is real and tangible."
