Field trips are an integral part of the Intensive Arabic Semester experience. There is something unique about being about to see things firsthand for yourself--to bear witness to the issues that are constantly discussed in your textbooks and on your televisions. With the help of our staff members, we take our students on field trips all over Israel to give them the unique opportunity to see for themselves the cultural and social issues that affect the diverse population of Israel. Field trips include half-days spent getting to know both Jewish and Arab communities in the local Wadi Ara area, as well as longer trips all over Israel which explore larger historical, social and political issues. Some of our past trips have included visits to Acco, Caesarea, Haifa, Druze Villages, Bedouin communities in the Negev, the Israeli-Jordanian Border, Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.
