About

The multidisciplinary Jewish Studies program from Bar Ilan University, which is taught entirely in English, offers four main concentrations in which students have a choice of introductory and advanced-level courses. 

Overview

These are Bible, Jewish History, Jewish Philosophy, and Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology. The program from Bar Ilan University also includes a wide variety of electives from other departments in the Faculty of Jewish Studies, such as Talmud, Hebrew and Semitic Languages, Hebrew Literature, Yiddish and Ladino, Jewish Art, and Middle Eastern Studies. The department allows students to create individualized curricula, which best reflect their interests within the field of Jewish Studies. 

Students may register for a dual-major in our department, combining their program with English Literature or Communications (also in English) or with any other undergraduate program given in Hebrew (for those with the appropriate level of Hebrew). Students who wish to register for the Jewish Studies program as an expanded single major should contact the Multidisciplinary Department. This degree can be completed in 3 or 4 years, depending on the student.

The Department also offers an honors program called “Cramim”, taught in Hebrew, which is open to candidates with very high scores. Interested candidates are invited to contact the department.
