BGU’s Israel studies students develop their own research-based understanding of Israel’s history, culture and politics.
Covering over a century of Zionism, the Woodman-Scheller Israel Studies International Program integrates historical and contemporary perspectives. Taught in English, students from around the world can explore the multifaceted layers of the Israeli experience. A graduate degree in Israel studies, using the Ben-Gurion Archives and the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism as resources, is ideal for students who want to pursue diplomatic or teaching positions related to Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.
