Political Science & Communication at Bar-Ilan University

The Political Science and Communication degree focuses on regional and Israeli-international relations. The student is exposed to the vast Israeli culture and local news sources, which helps to reach a better understanding of the political situation in Israel. For all of those interested in the Middle East and global politics: this degree is for you!
You will get an insight into the history of the region, international news channels, and the effects of Media.
The international students bring a diverse perspective to the table which leads to meaningful and insightful discussions.
The degree is taught in English by native speakers as well as Israeli Professors.
My personal favorite aspect of studying at Bar-Ilan is the international community which brings together so many cultures in one classroom. The community with diverse opinions helped me broaden my horizons and way of thinking, which I am sure will help me throughout my career path.

  • great support from the community
  • the campus has its own transportation system

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.

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.
