Thesis track (with a research thesis – thesis)

The Program accepts candidates with a bachelor’s degree (B.A., B.F.A., B.Ed, B.Sc.) from accredited higher education institutions in Israel and abroad, with a minimum grade average of 80. Holders of a bachelor’s degree from a higher education institution whose instruction language is other than Hebrew must pass a Hebrew examination at a level commensurate with University requirements. 

Thesis track

In this track a reduced course load (28 credit points) allows students to dedicate themselves to independent research on an original topic. Admission to the Program’s thesis track is subject to approval of research topic and the consent of a suitable supervisor. Students are encouraged to present their work at the departmental colloquium.

Theses must reflect the ability to analyze primary and secondary sources, utilization of a variety of scholarly approaches and paradigms, and must demonstrate the consistent application of research methodologies and lucid presentation of ideas.

All courses are offered on a single weekday to allow fulfillment of course requirements in three semesters of full time study. The study program for both the thesis and non-thesis tracks includes the following clusters:


Cultural Studies - an Overview

Research Methodologies


Politics and Culture

Inter-Cultural Encounters
