Israel: A Mosaic of Culture, Religion and History - Academic Study Tour - 3 credits
This unique academic course allows the student to study in classroom seminars alongside visits to many of the most important historical sites in the State of Israel. During the course, students will divide their days between the University of Haifa campus and field study sessions at sites throughout Israel.
Students are required to write a term paper and keep an academic journal in order to receive a final grade.

Terrorism and Responses - 3 credits
This course will examine the issue of terrorism as a growing form of political violence into the 21st Century. The last three decades of the 20th Century witnessed a phenomenal growth in terrorist activity around the world. Some groups rose and fell quite rapidly, but others have managed sustained campaigns and have achieved spectacular tactical success, among them the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. We will investigate the causes, methods and responses involved in the ongoing conflict between terrorist organizations and their adversaries.
Course Meets: Monday / Tuesday / Thursday; Time: 09:00-12:00
Total Hours: 40
