BGU's new Israel Studies International Program, the first of its kind in the country, is taught in English so that students from around the world can learn about multifaceted layers of Israeli experience, including its history, culture, ideology, society and politics.
A graduate degree in Israel studies, taught in its "natural laboratory," using the Ben-Gurion Archives and the expert researchers at the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism will benefit candidates seeking to enter administrative, diplomatic, civil society, or teaching positions related to Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.
With your help, we can recruit students of all faiths from across the globe to study Israel in the optimal environment for developing a critical, independent, research-based understanding of this great start-up nation.
