Arava Institute

Are you looking to study cross-border environmental issues while expanding your understanding of regional dynamics in the Middle East? At the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, students from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, the United States, and around the world live on a desert Kibbutz in southern Israel and work together to develop the skills and relationships that will allow them to become the next generation of environmental leaders. Courses are offered in areas such as Water Resource Management, Alternative Energy Science, Environmental Policy, and Conflict and Cooperation – and all courses are offered for academic credit through Ben Gurion University of the Negev, one of Israel’s top universities.
