The Hebrew University of Jerusalem




The Faculty of the Social Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is a vibrant intellectual hub. Over the past decade we have undergone a far-reaching process of regeneration that has impacted on all aspects of Faculty life. On this site you can read about our audacious and groundbreaking research; our cutting-edge course curricula; our theoretical and practical courses designed for the dynamic world in which we live; our innovative teaching methods; and above all a profound understanding that teaching and research cannot be detached from the world outside the university.

This process of renewal can also be seen in the construction of new classrooms and research laboratories and in the hiring of brilliant young researchers. We will continue to attract the best and brightest students in the country, and we will stop at nothing to provide them with a challenging and enriching learning experience.

I welcome you to the leading social sciences faculty in Israel, and one of the top 100 in the world. Our research, teaching, and the energetic intellectual atmosphere are the soil from which future scholars and leaders grow.
