Cairn University's Israel & Archaeology Program is an academically rigorous program intentionally designed to transform your life and relationship with Christ. Students become an integral part of a small group, engaging in ongoing discussion and study of the biblical, historical, and theological implications of the Bible with and emphasis on the land and people of Israel. The Israel & Archaeology Program can serve as a gap year after high school or as the foundation for further study at Cairn.

Learn a method for biblical interpretation and application in preparation for further university study.

Students will travel abroad to Israel and the surrounding lands on a two-week trip, seeing where the biblical narratives took place and the lands where Jesus and His disciples walked.
