BA Communication and Political Science

I liked the approach of each professors and education system making focus on knowledge and understanding. It is very easy to contact the professors and the classes are all interactive and well planned. Also, I like a lot that majority of classes are hybrid and I can re watch lectures .The International School was very helpful in my admission and current study process! I like the interaction with people here on campus and outside. Moreover, there a lot of interesting opportunities to travel and to see new country.

Pros
  • Location
  • Can retake exams

Bar Ilan University's Undergraduate Programs

After having made Aliyah to Israel seven years ago from New York, I began my journey at Bar Ilan University pursuing an undergraduate BA in Communications and Education. Bar Ilan is well summed-up as a vastly diverse institution where academically driven people can pursue their goals in an inviting enviroment. Studying Communications has opened me up to a world of knowledge and options for possible career paths. Bar Ilan offers an overall enriching university experience both academically - by broadening educational horizons and thereby leading students to pursue career-wise endeavors - and socially - from engaging in different recreational events on campus to forging connections with a range of people, therefore making it an ideal institution for all.
