Israel's third-largest city, Haifa is known for its ethnic and cultural diversity and natural beauty. Situated on the Mediterranean coast, it benefits from a moderate coastal climate all year long. The city is an interesting mix of modern architecture and older neighborhoods; churches and mosques; mountains and sea. With several museums of history, culture, and art, the country's largest port, an active beach, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Haifa is a multicultural, multifaceted city in which to live and study; with residents from the three largest religions as well as from various other faiths, Haifa is also a symbol of tolerance.
The Haifa program is ideal for students interested in living and studying in a country at the nexus of world history and current events you can enroll for a summer, semester or full year. Prior to the spring semester there is an intensive early start session for Hebrew.
