The Tel Aviv University undergraduate program is a three-year program, offering three study tracks: double-major (dm), single-major (sm) and expanded track studies. Each department offers different options. Please check with each department to learn about the available study tracks.


To earn a double-major (dm) BA, students must successfully complete the course of study in two departments. Departments need not be from the same Faculty, but they must both offer a double-major track.


Some departments offer a single-major track from the second year of study. Students with outstanding scholastic achievements during their first year of double-major studies may enroll in this track. Please check with the individual departments regarding specific requirements for single-major studies.


The departments of Archaeology and Ancient Eastern Cultures, Classics—Greece and Rome, and Arabic and Islam Studies offer expanded track studies, combining two fields of study in the same department, from the first year of studies.



  • A minimum score of 450 on the psychometric exam (does not include the Philosophy, Economics, Political Science - 0651 program). 
  • Candidates over 40 years of age with an Israeli matriculation certificate are exempt from the psychometric exam (does not include the Philosophy, Economics, Political Science - 0651 program).
