Coexistence in the Middle East (CME) is also offered as an academic program that offers participants the opportunity to experience the challenge of human diversity through a series of academic field trips and lectures, while earning academic credits at the Rothberg International School of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (RIS), ranked one of the World's top 100 universities. Participants may enroll in one or both courses of our summer program, or take part in the intensive 12-day session:
Summer Program | 6 credits - 90 academic hours | July 8- August 5, 2015
For two years in a row, "Coexistence in the Middle East" has been the most popular program among RIS summer courses. Following this success, CME will be expanded this summer into a 6-credit program that is comprised of the following two 3-credit courses:
- Narratives and Realities: Inside the Israeli Palestinian Conflict - View Syllabus
- Israel and the New Middle East: An Interactive View of the Post-Arab Spring - View Syllabus
Since these two courses are designed to complement each other, we strongly recommend participants to enroll in both courses. However, participants have the option to enroll in only one course or combine one of them with additional summer programs at RIS, such as InnovNation, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the high-tech industries and entrepreneurial ecosystem of the Start-Up Nation. Students who enroll in 2 courses at RIS will receive a 10% discount on the program fee.
Intensive program | 3 credits - 45 academic hours | December 27, 2015 - January 7, 2016
The intensive program concentrates the field trips into a period of 12 days in order to enable the participation of students and professionals that can't attend the full 4-weeks session. In this option there are no leisure days during the program but participants have the option to stay an additional weekend after the program. Professionals or participants who do not require academic credits will be exempt from the academic requirements and will be able to obtain an active participation certificate.
*We reserve the right to cancel courses for which there is insufficient registration.
