Trips within the country are an excellent way to benefit from your stay in Israel. Throughout the year, you will get many chances to explore different regions accompanied by Faculty.
Additionally, each year the Department of Middle Eastern and African History organizes a study tour to a country that has been influenced by Middle Eastern culture, religion, and rule at some point in history.
In the past, the Department has planned tours to Qatar, Southern Spain, Turkey, Jordan, Uzbekistan, Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt. Decisions for each year's trip will be based on the current security situation in the region. This is an excellent opportunity for international MAMES students to meet and befriend Israeli students who are also studying Middle Eastern and African Studies, as well as to connect with professors and benefit from their expertise.
