Program Structure (from fall 2019)

The following information applies to students who began the program on or after fall 2019. For students who began before this date, please click here for details.


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

To graduate, students are required to complete 120 credits.


A full degree is composed of the following:

  • General Studies module (core curriculum) (24 or 26 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 eight tracks:

    • Psychology

    • Middle Eastern Studies

    • Modern Jewish and Israel Studies

    • Digital Culture and Communications

    • Philosophy

    • Literature

    • Life Sciences

    • Entrepreneurship and Innovation​

      • 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. (Life Sciences and Entrepreneurship and Innovation are only available as minors.)

      • 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).

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. The program also offers Arabic and Hebrew classes as a part of the Middle Eastern Studies and Jewish Studies tracks. Students may study a maximum of eight credits in a foreign language. Note that grades from Hebrew classes do not count towards the final GPA.
