The semester-long program combines classroom lectures with field work in one of Israel's most culturally and ethnically diverse areas, where Jews, Arabs, and Druze have lived peacefully side-by-side for decades. Students are enrolled in courses taught by UM and Israeli faculty. UGalilee features an introductory Hebrew language program and courses in the following areas: Biology, International Studies, Journalism, Judaic Studies, Religious Studies, Geography, Social Sciences, and Humanities. The UM credits for these courses can be used to fulfill general education requirements and will be counted as part of a student's GPA. Successful students earn 18 UM credits. The program includes 10 faculty-led study trips throughout the country.
