Study Programs
For individuals and groups wanting to go beyond a pilgrimage program, St George’s College offers a range of more challenging study programs as well as facilities for research. Many of these programs can gain academic credit at colleges, seminaries, and universities, or points for continuing education and professional development requirements. We welcome scholars who wish to use our library or work with the archaeological materials from Tel Dothan in the Benshoof Cistern Museum.

The Ways in the Wilderness program explores biblical, monastic, and personal themes of wilderness as we visit sites in Israel, Palestine, and Jordan.

While the details of every programme vary depending on local circumstances and date, we would typically visit the following places during the course:
