Why major in Middle Eastern Studies at CIU?
Because in the Middle Eastern Studies program you can walk where Jesus walked! Not only will you develop cross-cultural communication and ministry skills, you will gain personal experience in Middle Eastern life and culture as you study for one year in Israel at Jerusalem University College (JUC). While in Israel, you will live in a Jewish or Arab context to develop your ministry skills according to your vocational goals. This will help you understand the beliefs and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, as well as acquire a firsthand knowledge of the geography of Israel, Egypt and Jordan.
