Academics

 

Courses and Credit

Admitted participants are required to register themselves in the temporary study abroad placeholder course, ARTSSCI 5797. Specific registration instructions will be provided in the Ohio State acceptance letter. 

Multiple summer programs are available. The semester programs offer a rich variety of exciting courses in the fields of International Relations, Social Sciences, Arts, Environmental Studies, History, Religion, Business and many more. Each course awards 3 semester credits, for a total of up to 15 undergraduate level credits per semester (21 credits with Ulpan, see below).

Each semester program is preceded by a mandatory Intensive Hebrew course (Ulpan), offering students at different levels of language proficiency the ability to substantially develop their Hebrew skills. The Ulpan awards students 6 semester credits upon successful completion. Native Hebrew speakers may request to take an Ulpan-exemption test when confirming their participation, but not later.

Students are strongly encouraged to review the credit transfer process in full and to discuss their overall academic goals with their academic advisor(s) beforehand.
