Notre Dame's Jerusalem Semester Program is conducted at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute, located atop a hill on the road from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. On the Tantur Ridge there is a magnificent view of beautiful and historic sights. To the south are the church spires of Bethlehem and the Muslim minarets of other Arab villages. To the north spreads the great city of Jerusalem, its Old City walls only a 10-minute drive away. To the east a jumble of hills falls off into the Jordan Valley. Students will be challenged in their courses and in their daily lives to reflect on the meanings and experiences of the Holy Land. While studying at the Jerusalem Global Gateway, students may also select from courses offered at a number of local education institutions including Bethlehem University, Hebrew University, and Polis Language Institute. The academic program is enhanced by co-curricular and cultural excursions throughout the semester.
