UHL Degree Programs and Spring Courses


Degree Programs

a. UHL’s student body is international, interdenominational and intergenerational. Students from diverse backgrounds can celebrate their graduation in first century dress in the authentically built, first century synagogue at Nazareth Village, a showcase for UHL’s archaeological and New Testament degree programs.

b. Degree offerings include the Master of Theological Studies and the Master of Arts in the History & Culture of Ancient Israel, New Testament & Early Christianity, Archaeology, Judaic Studies or Cultural Anthropology. UHL offers a research Ph.D. program, focusing on majors best studied in the land of the Bible.

c. Getting down and dirty is a daily experience for students of archaeology at the University of the Holy Land. Dig opportunities throughout the country take the study of archaeology out of the realm of the theoretical and into the real world. The archaeology student becomes equipped to understand the field, literally from the ground up, beginning with the basics of field archaeology and culminating in the final phases of the publication of field reports.

d. Distance Learning. The rich resources of UHL’s curriculum travel from Jerusalem to your living room through UHL’s Distance Learning courses. The use of the Internet, with its powerful graphic and data tools, brings the world of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Jewish literature of the Second Temple Period, Historical Geography, Cultural Anthropology, Theology and other subjects, alive, linking students from around the world in a “virtual” classroom.


* Cooperative Programs. UHL offers the student the opportunity to experience the finest that Jerusalem has to offer in both Jewish and Christian scholarship. Sister-school relationships with the Hebrew University’s Rothberg School for International Students and the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Française open an unparalleled door of opportunity to study with the finest “consortium” of scholars and utilizing the finest library resources in the Middle East.
