The King’s College is proud to partner with the Galilea Fellowship and the Center for Hebraic Thought to offer students a three month (one semester) immersive semester in Israel. The Galilea Fellowship brings English-speaking, Christian young adults to Israel as teaching fellows for an organized program of community service, study, and touring. Students receive academic credit (up to 12 credit hours) for teaching English at Jewish and Arab-Christian schools, taking a class on Jewish-Christian relations, and learning introductory modern Hebrew. Tours will be with licensed guides to local archaeological, religious, and historical sites. The program also offers the fellows local guest speakers, Hebrew language learning, and a Shabbat experience.
