Program Structure

The BA in Liberal Arts is designed to be completed as a full degree program. 

To graduate, students are required to complete 117 credits.

 

A full degree is composed of the following:

  • General Studies module (core curriculum) (21 or 23 credits). A series of introductory courses intended to acquaint students with major academic fields and approaches. Taken during the first year, these courses introduce students to history, philosophy, the social sciences, literature, science and academic writing. (Note that students study either two or four credits of academic writing depending on prior experience.)

  • Elective tracks. Students choose four of the following six tracks:

    • Psychology

    • Middle Eastern Studies

    • Modern Jewish and Israel Studies

    • Digital Culture and Communications

    • Philosophy

    • Literature

      • Major (36 credits). Students choose one of the four elective tracks to pursue in the greatest depth. In this track the students will also participate in a senior seminar in their final year of studies. Students will declare their major at the end of the first year.

      • Minor (24 credits). This track will also involve a senior seminar.

      • Two basic tracks (18 credits each, or 18 and 16 credits depending on the number of general studies credits completed).

  • Second language. All students are required to demonstrate proficiency in a language other than English by the time they graduate. Students who come in with advanced skills in a second language will be tested for an exemption. Others are required to take courses in a language of their choice, out of a range offered by the university. Language courses are not counted for credit.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of TAU’s Centre for Language Excellence which offers a wide variety of foreign language courses at no extra cost. Students who wish to use Hebrew for their exemption are welcomed to do so, however, courses are not included in the tuition fee and incur an extra cost.
