MORE CULTURE. LESS SHOCK. Programs, Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

Study Abroad Programs in Israel

(Flag of Israel) IFSA-Butler programs in Israel are offered through the Alliance for Global Education.

Israel has been a major Mediterranean intersection of global trade and empires for millennia. Today it is home to one of the most compellingly diverse populations of complex origins and identities in the world. It has also evolved one of the most innovative business eco-systems, with one of the highest densities of start-ups and tech incubators in the world.

As an Alliance student, you will explore Israel’s unique approaches to coexistence or business and innovation through our culturally engaged and academically challenging programs. Study in one of two cities that embody Israel’s fascinating plurality and entrepreneurial spirit. Living and studying among Israelis, engage cosmopolitan communities of free-thinkers at every turn. Discover the lessons this country’s struggles and successes hold for our rapidly shifting world today.
