From the very beginning of our undergraduate (B.A.) program, students acquire a deep practical and theoretical knowledge of political science, with concrete skills in research and analytic reasoning. This allows them to deeply understand and analyze the manner in which politics influences various national processes and movements. During their studies, students receive the opportunity to participate in active research projects, complete workshops on preparing CVs and succeeding in job interviews, and take part in employment orientation days with representatives from some of the largest national and multinational organizations in Israel. A degree in political science provides our students with the skills and opportunities to work in diverse fields and institutions, and to pursue graduate studies. The master's program (M.A.) places a strong emphasis on practical research and offers students the chance to pursue specialized research interests. This in turn enables students to develop strong connections with researchers and lecturers in these fields. Our graduates attain senior positions in a diverse range of fields, including management, communication, consulting and politics. Recent graduates have gone on to become members of the Knesset, diplomats, local politicians, officials in the defense and foreign affairs establishment, leading media figures, lecturers and researchers. Moreover, the degree provides a basis for integration with international organizations whose activities include analysis of state systems.
