Winter Session

Winter Session

We offer a number of short-term courses in December and January, which are open to those who need a break from the cold winter climates of the North, as well as students from the South who are on summer break. You can take these two- to three-week courses for credit, and experience Israel on the ground and at its greenest. 

Israeli & International Law: Mishpatim Seminar

This course introduces students to the Israeli legal system, while focusing on current issues at the core of the Israeli legal debate. As a participant, you’ll examine key issues related to the identity of the Israeli state – including Jerusalem, interaction with the Palestinian population in Israel and in the Occupied Territories, and the status of refugees. You’ll learn both in an academic environment and via several field trips, allowing you to experience firsthand the workings of the Israeli legal system.

The Israel-Hamas War: Beyond Campus Rhetoric 

This course provides participants / students with the tools to understand and engage with the issues regarding this more than century old conflict, its more recent manifestation on campus in visual culture and across the media and social networks.
