Study in Israel Through These MGSDII Faculty-Led Research Trips
Our Classroom Collaboration programs foster a greater understanding of Israel, friendships, and working academic relationships between American and Israeli students and professors. Throughout the academic year, students collaborate remotely via Zoom and Facebook. Then, all cohorts travel to Israel and San Diego to research with their peers.
