Take a semester abroad at An Najah University in Nablus!  Beginning in the summer of 2016 — earn 15 credit hours!

This program looks at the intricate balances between politics and religion, culture, economics, and human rights with field studies on peace, justice, and conflict in a developing land that cannot yet call itself a state. Although this program is located in the West Bank of Palestine, it will take a look at the many perspectives of the occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The West Bank will become a living classroom as students engage inside and outside the classroom sharing their ideas, traveling to important parts of the country; visiting historically significant sites, refugee camps, villages, holy sites, and more. Students will also have the opportunity to create a positive impact in their new host community through a variety of volunteer activities related to social development, agriculture, and environmental protection.
