Fall Semester 2018 - Courses in BA Liberal Arts Program that Run According to the Israeli Semester Dates

The below courses are 2 or 4 credit courses which are part of the BA Program in Liberal Arts (taught in English). Study abroad students can take these courses but they must be aware that the ends dates of the courses are in mid to late January in most cases, beyond the dates of the regular study abroad calendar. There might be cases where students can leave according to the study abroad calendar (December 20) and instead do an additional course assignment to make up for the missing weeks of the course. If you are interested in taking these courses, please first discuss with the TAU International Office Academic Coordinator Yael Gazit to understand the dates and the possibilities for these courses. More information on the class locations, exact dates, and syllabi for each BA course will be provided on the BA Liberal Arts web site.
