Special Programs

BIOLA ABROAD Biola Abroad is an in-residence program offering an academic semester in Europe. Students are given the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and integrate learning with experience. To bring culture to life, class­ work is richly supplemented by field trips. Classes are conducted in English and courses of instruction and credits are the same as those on the La Mirada campus. Because of economic and political instability, programs abroad are under constant review. A strong effort is made to offer a quality program at a reasonable price. Academic semesters are planned with a German orientation each fall. Course offerings are primarily in the area of general education requirements on the sopho­ more level, but some upperclassmen with an interest in the humanities may qualify. Students pursuing studies toward a baccalaureate may apply. All participants must be full-time students and choose one from each of the five following blocks of classes for 12-15 units of credit It is important that incoming students interested in taking part in Biola Abroad plan their curriculum from the start, leaving open courses to be taken abroad during their sophomore year and satisfying prerequi­ sites. Applications for the fall must be completed in February. For further information please contact Mrs. P. Buss, Administrative Assistant of Biola Abroad, 13800 Biola Avenue, La Mirada, CA 90639-0001, or call Biola extension 4828/5574.

BIOLA·ISRAEL Biola-Israel is designed for the serious student, committed to Christ and to building meaningful relation­ ships with others. Students are not limited by academic major, personal background or professional goals. The program begins with a campus-based class during the fall semester, involving guest lecturers, special field trips and a weekend workshop. This is done in preparation for the abroad field studies "on-site" in the Holy Land during the January interterm. With this combination, the Bible as well as the morning newspaper comes alive as one traces the routes of biblical characters in conjunction with modern events. While traveling the length and breadth of the country, students actually meet the people who live today around the ancient sites of Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Joppa, Jericho, Jerusalem, Masada, the Dead Sea, Beersheba, the place of Israel's wilderness wanderings, Eilat, the Red Sea, and many more. Directed by biblical studies professor Dr. Ron Pierce, this unique travel-study opportunity provides a thorough­ ly integrated learning experience. In the course of study the central topic of "Israel" is approached from the vary­ ing perspectives of biblical studies, historical geography, intercultural studies, history (ancient and modern) and political science. One even sharpens his/her skills on interpersonal relationships (small group dynamics) and, at the same time, gets into shape physically for some very challenging hikes. With this in mind, the following combined fall-interterm curriculum package was designed, up to eight units which may be counted toward graduation requirements in all degree programs. Required Courses Units BBOT 310 Biblical Backgrounds: Israel 3 PEED 110 Coed Conditioning 1 Electives (choose one to four units) Units BBLE 460 Israel/Middle East 2 BBST 450 People and Land 3 INAN 332 People of Israel 3 HIST 470 Emergent Israel 1 Though seeking to keep costs as low as possible, personal safety and quality education are our primary considerations. An information packet (mcluding many "questions and answers" about the program, a prelimi­ nary itinerary and an application form) is available in the Biola-Israel office in Feinberg Hall. Applications should be submitted along with a deposit early in the spring semester prior to preregistration for fall classes. Acceptance is on a first-<:ome basis as far as the maximum class size of 30 students allows. For further information contact Dr. Ron Pierce, Biola extension 4821 or 4819.
