Program Overview

Program Description:

The Department of Summer Courses and Special Programs at the Rothberg International School (RIS) at Hebrew University, which is ranked among the world's top 100 universities, offers a wide array of short-term courses and programs throughout the year. You can choose courses from our July, August, and winter sessions, as well as elect to take language courses or participate in archaeological field schools. We also work directly with faculty and study abroad offices in developing faculty-led and other customized programs. 

With decades of experience hosting enthusiastic learners from around the world, RIS can help you make the most of your short time in Israel and dive into your area of study in a whole new way.

Summer Sessions
Summer abroad courses are designed for undergraduate and graduate students as well as mature learners with academic backgrounds. These courses go beyond the classroom. You’ll join students from more than 70 countries around the world and enjoy a summer schedule packed with enriching seminars, fun activities, and local trips designed to help you explore Israel’s geographic and cultural landscape.

We have two summer sessions to suit your needs: a four-week July session and a two-week August session. If you want to get the most of your summer, you can combine courses from both sessions. All summer courses at HebrewU’s RIS are accredited and taught in English

Winter Session
A number of short-term courses in December and January are open to those who need a break from the cold winter climates of the North or for 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.

Setting Description:
From the hilltop of the Mount Scopus campus, the incredible panorama of Jerusalem unfolds. Medieval maps show Jerusalem as the heart of the world. Astonishingly, it remains there: the seam line where West meets East, the First World faces the Third World, and where Judaism, Christianity, and Islam meet.
