2016 will be the fourth year for the MTSU Faculty-Led Study Abroad program to Israel! Both Dr. Byrnes and Dr. Petersen have traveled to Israel and will accompany the group throughout the program. While in Israel, we will be accompanied by a professional guide and historian, Ronny Simon. Instruction in Israel will occur on site and in transit in English (our classroom will be Israel!). Dr. Petersen will provide course instruction prior to the trip as well. Students will have the opportunity to study the history of Israel as both a nation and a state along with the politics of modern, democratic Israel. We will visit many of the major Judeo-Christian sites during our tour as these locations are significant to the history of Israel and the relationship between Israel and The United States. Political site visits (scheduled) include: the Golan Heights, the Knesset, significant areas from the 1948 and 1967 wars, Yad Vashem, and more.
