The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, ranked among the top 100 universities worldwide, announces new international bachelor of arts degree programs taught in English.

Jerusalem, a city known for its rich history, cultural diversity and dynamic atmosphere, serves as the backdrop for this unique educational journey. Students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and culture of Jerusalem while pursuing their undergraduate studies in one of the world’s most innovative cities.
Eligible U.S. students can earn a three-year B.A. at Israel’s premier university and take advantage of highly competitive tuition fees that are less than most popular American colleges—annual tuition is $15,500. In addition, Hebrew University is a Title IV eligible foreign school which enables students to receive U.S. financial aid alongside generous scholarships for eligible students.

The Hebrew University international B.A. programs offer three distinct tracks, all taught in English:

Business & English: Students can explore the intersection of business administration with a strong foundation in the humanities, fostering advanced language skills and critical thinking to prepare for a diverse range of careers.

Liberal Arts & Business: This track combines the critical thinking skills of liberal arts with the practical knowledge of business, where students can embrace creativity and unconventional thinking through hands-on academic experiences that bridge theory with practical application.

English & Liberal Arts: Students can cultivate adaptable skills in analysis, critical thinking, and communication, gaining a versatile understanding of how academic disciplines intertwine and influence each other.

These programs at the Hebrew University Rothberg International School give students the flexibility to design a double-major B.A. degree from a top-tier university, allowing them to align their academic goals with their future career aspirations. Currently, the Rothberg International School hosts a vibrant community of more than 2,300 international students, providing not only academic excellence but also a rich and diverse student life experience.

In addition, the option to live in apartment-style housing in Jerusalem affords students the opportunity to enjoy the thriving capital of Israel with independence and comfort, while being supported by HU Student Life staff. From the moment of arrival, Student Life staff members are available to help and can offer a range of activities and trips designed to ​immerse students in Israeli culture.

Hebrew University is hosting an Open Day on Oct. 6 at 11 a.m. at its Mount Scopus Campus in Jerusalem. This event will provide a unique opportunity for individuals to learn more about the available programs and immerse themselves in the academic and cultural atmosphere of the university.
