Israel Bible EXtension
(IBEX)
The Israel Bible EXtension program, called “IBEX,”
is The Master’s College (TMC) extension program
in Israel. The IBEX program provides a unique
laboratory experience, studying the Bible in the
Land of the Bible. This semester abroad program
consists of 13-16 credits and is crafted to meet
select general education requirements. In addition
to the semester-abroad program, other short term
programs are available (see Cooperative Programs for
details). Students must apply for the IBEX program
and space is limited. Participants should apply early
in their college program, maintain a college GPA of
2.75 or higher, and have completed Old Testament
Survey I (B100 ) or a college-level equivalent and meet
medical requirements. Students should consult with
their academic advisor regarding feasibility of the
IBEX program with their selected major.
Location
Our extension campus is in the Jerusalem vicinity.
Facilities include dormitory, cafeteria, library and
lecture hall. Wireless access is available at the IBEX
campus.
Cost
The price for a semester in Israel (including tuition,
full board and field trip expenses) is the same as that
of a TMC student living on the California campus.
Students are charged for airfare.
Programs
Semester Abroad.
IBEX is a full semester
abroad program, which provides a quality
educational opportunity for students who
wish to enhance their knowledge of the
geographical, historical, archaeological and
cultural understanding of the land of Israel,
both ancient and modern. Classroom lectures
are integrated with frequent field trips; together,
these expose the student to the land and to every
period of the history of the people of that land.
The student’s educational experience, as well
as his/her personal maturation, is significantly
enhanced by the cross-cultural experience which
the semester-abroad program provides.
