USAC Israel: Haifa (Semester/Yearlong)

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Study abroad in Haifa during a yearlong program or a semester. This is a gorgeous city situated on the slopes of Mount Carmel and nestled on the coast of the Mediterranean. Living in Haifa for a longer period of time rather than the summer session will allow students to really be immersed in the local community. You may also be able to enroll in an internship program and increase your future employment opportunities. Have more time to explore the outdoor and sea activities to engage in including failing and surfing as well as enjoying hiking and wildlife reserves. This is ideal for study abroad students who would be captivated by the Carmel National Park. The city is also a major center for restaurants, cinemas, a symphony orchestra, music and film festivals, as well as museums. You will be able to use Haifa as a starting off point to visit and tour around other regions in Israel.

This is a strong cultural and religious community with mosques and churches alongside the Jewish community. Haifa is also home to the only Ahmadi Muslim community in Israel and also hosts the Baha’i faith. Students studying abroad in this location will have many opportunities to explore this robust religious landscape. The yearlong and semester programs are important to allow students to increase their understanding of the region.
