Explore the world from the inside out through transdisciplinary study in Jerusalem.
Every winter (usually December/January), UW faculty lead a three-week course that
starts in Jerusalem and ends anywhere your interest, intellect, and local transportation
can take you. You will begin with a fall prep course that readies you for transdisciplinary
study in the region, and allows you to participate in course development relevant
to your interests. Credits overall: 3-6.
- Students start in residence at the W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research,
just outside the Old City of Jerusalem.
- Courses are led by two faculty from different disciplines, who have trained in transdisciplinary
teaching and experiential learning. Courses are themed, but designed to engage students
from any discipline, and to support them in exploratory study.
- Admission to the program is by competitive application.
- Successful students may apply for Cheney scholarship support and travel funding from
their departments and college.
