USF in Israel-Palestine

Beyond Bridges: Israel-Palestine is a summer program that takes university students to the Middle East on a journey of comparative conflict analysis and transformation.  The program combines rigorous academics and practical hands-on training, allowing students to explore questions at the core of all conflicts.

Run in partnership with the University of San Francisco, Beyond Bridges: Israel-Palestine enables students to explore theories and applications of conflict transformation in a place where the effects of a conflict are a part of daily life.

Based in Jerusalem, students visit renowned sites and learn with academics and activists from across the political spectrum, examining a multitude of voices from outside the mainstream discourse on Israel-Palestine.  After the program, students have the option to extend their stay to intern with Israeli and/or Palestinian NGOs.
