Duke in Israel

The Department of Religion (along with Ancient and Middle-Eastern Studies) is sponsoring a wonderful new Study Abroad Program this summer (2009): DUKE IN ISRAEL. A six week program located in Jerusalem, it will feature two courses: one on Biblical Archaeology, and one on the city of Jerusalem itself! The program includes a long field trip to the most important archaeological sites in Israel and also some in Jordan, such as Petra, a World Heritage site described by UNESCO as "one of the most precious cultural properties."

An optional 5-week Duke Engage program, following the academic program, is available.

The following document gives full details of the program:
