Israel Bible EXtension


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 2.9 or

higher, and have completed Old Testament Survey I

(B100) or a college-level equivalent, and meet medical

and physical requirements. Students should consult

with their academic advisor regarding feasibility of

the IBEX program with their selected major.


Our extension campus is in the Jerusalem vicinity.

Facilities include dormitory, cafeteria, library, and

lecture hall. Wireless access is available at the IBEX



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.


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 that

the semester-abroad program provides.
