M.A. in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies (June 2017)
B.A. from Sun Yat-sen University, China
“Having been studying at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for almost one year, I have to say that this year is one of the most unforgettable and illuminating years in my life.
“I’m doing the one-year M.A. program in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, which exposes me to an international atmosphere, various multilingual classmates, and numerous fascinating stories about Israel and Jerusalem as well as the chance to learn Arabic and Hebrew at the same time. The courses are very intensive since there are plenty of readings to do before every class, and sometimes the assignments are also very heavy, but through such large amounts of readings, I learned more about the Middle East, especially when I took the opportunity to explore holy Jerusalem in the study tours during the summertime.
“There are really bundles of reasons to stay at HebrewU to study: well-organized educational system and courses, learned professors, active international classmates, kind office staff, etc. To sum it up, if you want to study Middle Eastern history, languages, anthropology, religions, and even arts, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem should be for you.”
We offer courses and programs in a variety of fields, with a focus on social and political sciences, Israel and the Middle East, languages, religion, fine and performing arts, business and legal studies, and STEM.
