JERUSALEM (JTA) — Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs established a joint program with the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya in Israel.
The joint program with the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy at IDC Herzliya, near Tel Aviv, will begin in the fall.
Under the program, juniors from the Wilson School will enroll in the Middle East specialization at the Lauder School. At the end of the semester in Israel, the students will write a policy paper as part of the Princeton Task Force Program.
IDC Herzliya is the Wilson School’s only partner in the Middle East. Princeton has similar partnerships with six universities worldwide, including the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom and Sciences Po in Paris.
Founded in 1994, IDC Herzliya is the first private, non-profit institute of higher education in Israel. Twenty-five percent of its student body comes from abroad, mostly from the United States and Europe.
Princeton has study abroad programs at several universities in Israel: the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Rothberg International School; Tel Aviv University; the Lowy School for Overseas Students; and the University of Haifa.
