Mayterm and Summer Session Programs
Mayterm and summer session programs offer students up to 8 units of credit while studying abroad in the summer. All programs are faculty-led and provide students with an opportunity to learn, live, and engage with the culture around them while building community with their Mayterm cohort.
Our Mayterm and summer programs for 2020 were cancelled due to Covid-19. We will be updating our website at the beginning of the academic year with our list of programs for 2021. Please note that Mayterm and summer programs do not run every year.

Jerusalem University College (JUC) Mayterm
So maybe you’ve known about the Bible all your life...But have you ever hiked from Jerusalem to Jericho? Seen Mt. Zion? Taken a boat across the Sea of Galilee? This Mayterm is designed to get you out of the classroom and into the real space of Israel’s story. For three weeks you will live just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem at Jerusalem University College. You’ll hike Masada at sunrise, swim in the Dead Sea, and visit the breathtakingly beautiful spring of Ein Gedi where David and his men hid from Saul.

Singapore Summer Session
Once a backwater ancient trade route, the Lion City was influenced by colonial forces, benefited by the happenstance of innovation, and forged though an amalgam of Asian entrepreneurial spirit and Western economics. It's against this backdrop, and in the third largest global financial center, that we study international trade, finance, and look at what it means to think biblically about corporate responsibility and ethical sourcing. You’ll “base camp” in Singapore with excursions to neighboring countries to see cultural and religious sites and industry destinations.

South Africa Mayterm: Numerical Mathematics
Travel to South Africa to learn Numerical Mathematics from a world-renowned researcher in the field, to study the history of racial and social inequality in South Africa and to experience first-hand what reconciliation and building a new democracy look like in real life. You’ll attend classes and computer lab sessions in Numerical Mathematics taught by Dr Van der Walt and Dr Weideman from Stellenbosch University – this course is a must to prepare you to use mathematics to solve real-world problems through computer methods.
