Internship options will only be available for Spring 2022 at this time and in accordance with COVID-19 regulations. This is subject to change.
Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.
USAC's partnership with the University of Haifa provides you with an array of academic offerings taught in English. You are required to take a minimum of 12 credits per semester; however, the normal course load for international students is between 15-16 credits. Areas of study believed to be of most interest to USAC students are included below as a sample of what the University offers. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by the University of Haifa.
Recent courses have included:
Language courses in both Hebrew and Arabic will be offered in the Winter Intensive Ulpan (the early start session before Spring Semester).
The University of Haifa internship program features directed work-study experiences related to your academic or vocational interests; the internships are for academic credit. The program is coordinated by a member of the International School faculty along with on-site supervisors who hold academic or professional credentials. Internships are mostly focused in the areas of social services, health services, and education, but other possibilities may be available.
Placement is not guaranteed by USAC; it will be determined by your application and supporting materials and an interview onsite with the internship sponsor. Upon admission to the International School and receipt of the internship program application, the Internship Coordinator will be in touch with the student about possible internship placements. The internship awards 3 credits.
