This Honors College Seminar Abroad will introduce first and second year students to

research through the lens of immigration and cultural diversity in Israel. Immigration, cultural diversity, and inter-cultural relationships present important issues for many countries in the world. Israel, a state which encourages immigration, and therefore is very culturally diverse, is a great site for investigating these issues. Students participating in the program will engage in weekly research seminars during the fall, a 15 day field research experience in Israel during winter break, and weekly research seminars during the spring. Students will present the results of their research projects at the University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF).
