University of Haifa

Interested in studying abroad in Israel? The Jewish Studies Program at the College has established an informal partnership with the University of Haifa International School. The University of Haifa offers a variety of academic tracks to choose from, courses taught in English, and an experience you will never forget.

Situated at the top of the Carmel Mountains, amidst the Carmel National Forest, with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, University of Haifa provides the perfect setting for your International Study Abroad Experience.

The University of Haifa is the largest comprehensive research university in northern Israel. It is a microcosm of Israeli society dedicated to academic excellence and social responsibility.

An exciting and inspiring cultural mosaic, the university has a diverse student population made up of Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze and Bedouins, a combination of new immigrants with native Israelis, a blend of the secular and the religious. Over 18,000 students study at the University of Haifa and we encourage you to be one of them. (UHIS Website)

Despite this informal partnership, College of Charleston students are welcome to study at the Israeli university of their choice. To discuss studying abroad in Haifa or elsewhere, please contact Dr. Martin Perlmutter at or at 843.953.5682.
