Administrative History

The Jerusalem Center is Brigham Young University's center for study in Jerusalem. Students enroll through the BYU campus in Provo, Utah, travel to the Holy Land, and live in the Center for programs that extend for two, four, or five months. Students study a core curriculum that focuses on Old and New Testament, ancient and modern Near Eastern studies, and language (Hebrew and Arabic). Classroom study is built around field trips that cover the length and breadth of the Holy Land. A study abroad program to Israel was established in January 1968 with students housed in various hotels, youth hostels and kibbutzim throughout the city. The Jerusalem Center was completed and occuppied in 1988.
