FACULTY OF HUMANITIES
Israeli society is undergoing fundamental change that will only grow stronger. Our role as an academic institution is to bring together students from different worlds, with different beliefs and perceptions, and prepare those students for the real world that exists beyond the campus. Our aim is to ensure that students who complete our degree programs are equipped with empirical knowledge and the best practical tools for success in a changing and diverse labor market.
