Israel Bible EXtension (IBEX)
This 15-week semester abroad program is a high-quality educational opportunity in Israel for students who wish to
enhance their knowledge of the Bible’s historical, archaeological, and geographic background. Classroom lectures are
integrated with extensive field trips. Together, these expose the student to every corner of 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,
will be significantly enhanced by the cross-cultural experience that the semester provides. Students must apply for this
program and be in reasonable physical condition and free of medical limitations. For information on IBEX, see the
IBEX pages within the Biblical Studies section of this catalog and/or contact the IBEX Office at 1-800-568-6248. This
program is sponsored by The Master’s University & Seminary.

The Master's University in Italy
Led by Dr. Grant Horner and Prof. Esther Chua, TMU in Italy is a new study abroad program based in incomparably
beautiful Italy. Students, upon acceptance to the program, will spend six weeks in Italy in July through mid-August to
earn 12 undergraduate credits in a variety of courses while deeply immersed in Italian culture. The entire program is
based on exploring the question “quid est homo?” (“what is Man?”) asked by the Italian Renaissance Christian Humanist
scholars, and the related biblical question “what is man that Thou art mindful of him?” (Psalm 8). The typical student
will take two survey-level courses as well as two upper division Oxford-style tutorials. This program is open to all majors.
