School of Education - Undergraduate Progams
The Jaime and Joan Constantiner School of Education
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; 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. Therefore, students are advised to choose as a second major a subject which is taught in secondary schools.
The program in Education includes three clusters, of which applicants have to choose two: One as a primary and another as secondary. All courses are taught in Hebrew.
The three clusters are:
Development and learning processes
This cluster aims to deepen the knowledge about key aspects of human development processes and models for normal development. This cluster will enable exposure to specific programs in the education system for children with and without special needs. In addition, students will recognize models of educational systems consulting processes and acquire the primary role of educational-therapeutic interventions with populations with and without disabilities. This cluster will include a sub-cluster which will deal with education of children with hearing impairment.
