Study at Jerusalem University College

Our appreciation of the integrity of the Scriptures and the importance of interpreting them in their historical and cultural context is greatly enhanced by a firsthand investigation of the features and significant sites of the Holy Land. Study at the Jerusalem University College uniquely enriches biblical studies for students who wish to deepen their understanding of biblical backgrounds, geography, and archeology.

Jerusalem University College (JUC), located on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, was founded in 1957 as the Institute of Holy Land Studies in order “to draw students closer to the past and present of the Holy Land.”

Approved by the Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Religious Affairs of the State of Israel, the college is well-recognized academically by seminaries and theological schools in the United States. As a member of the Associated Schools of Jerusalem University College, Multnomah Biblical Seminary enjoys a consortial relationship with the college. This means that students may take courses at JUC and apply them to their degree programs. Students wishing to take courses at JUC should seek approval from their advisor prior to taking courses at the college.

Students register for courses at JUC and pay tuition to the college. For more information on courses, tuition, financial aid information, and enrollment, please visit the JUC website: www.juc.edu. Financial aid is not available from Multnomah for courses taken at JUC.
