The B.A. program of the School of Education (0723) provides students with concepts and a broad and interdisciplinary background in the educational sciences. It exposes students to:
- the role of education in a multi-cultural and global society;
- a variety of formal and informal educational settings; classic and emerging models in education;
- trends in leadership and entrepreneurship in education;
- knowledge about human development and interpersonal differences in cognitive, emotional, social and normal and abnormal behavior;
- scientific thinking and research skills;
- contemporary information technologies and changes in teaching and learning processes.
B.A. level studies do not provide professional training, nor do they qualify students for a Teaching Certificate or other professional diplomas.
The BA in Education is a double-major program. Students who wish to pursue their studies in one of the MA Education programs and work at schools need a Teaching Certificate. Accordingly, students are advised to choose as a second major a subject which is taught in secondary schools.
The program in Education includes two primary tracks, of which applicants must choose one. All courses are taught in Hebrew.
The two tracks are:
1. Development and learning processes
This track aims to deepen the knowledge about key aspects of human development processes and models for normal development. Students will be exposed to specific educational programs for children with and without special needs.
In addition, students will learn models of educational systems and consulting processes. They will acquire basic knowledge of educational-therapeutic interventions for populations with and without disabilities.
2. Education and technology in a changing society
This track focuses on changes that deeply affect educational systems, including technology, mobility and multiculturalism. Students will be exposed to educational issues including social inequality and the implementation of innovative technologies in teaching, learning and online learning environments.
The track also focuses on entrepreneurship and innovation in education with a focus on both theory and practice at the global, national and local level.
Applicants who at the time of registration are uncertain as to which track is most suitable for them, may choose the tract at the end of the first academic year.
For more information, please visit the Hebrew website of the School of Education.
Candidates should specify their track in his/her application form.
Candidates are required to take the psychometric entrance examination and achieve a minimum grade of 540, and have a combined grade of 575 (which is a combination between the high school matriculation exam and the psychometric exam).
