Spring Semester 2024 - Study Abroad Courses

 

All courses, syllabi, dates and times below are subject to cancellation or change.

 

Classroom locations will be posted closer to course start dates. For a schedule of Spring 2024 important dates, including courses start and end dates, please visit our Study Abroad Calendar.

All students are responsible for carefully reading the Spring 2024 TAU International Academic Handbook prior to registering for courses. All the details are located in our Study abroad academic policies page. In this handbook, students will find detailed and essential academic information which they are responsible for understanding regarding courses, TAU academic policies, course registration, important academic deadlines and dates, and more.

TAU International Study Abroad students must enroll in a minimum of 4 courses listed below during each semester (if your home school requires you to enroll in more than 4, you are required to adhere to your home school requirements). Please note that all courses below are worth 3 semester credits unless otherwise noted (as is the case with Hebrew courses and Service Learning courses). Note that Hebrew Ulpan (the pre-term ulpan) is not part of the 4 courses but in addition to the 4 courses.

TAU does not permit, under any circumstances, taking any in-class (including mid or final) exams or final presentations early. When selecting courses, it is thus very important to note below if there is an in-class final (or presentation) as the date and type of exam cannot be changed. Early departures from the program are not approved, nor are early or exception exams or presentations.

All of the BA in the Liberal Arts program courses listed below run on the regular TAU calendar. However, study abroad students who take any of the courses below will be allowed to depart at the same time as any study abroad student and will be able to continue their courses remotely.

Note that the course of the Business & Entrepreneurship program as well as the Voyage to Medicine program are only available to students registered for those programs.

Courses in the BA in Liberal Arts Program

Study abroad students may take courses in the Liberal Arts program. Note that all the BA courses listed below run on the regular TAU calendar. However, study abroad students who take any of the courses below will be allowed to depart at the same time as any study abroad student and will be able to continue their courses remotely. This means you will complete your study abroad courses and continue remotely for until June 23, 2024. All BA courses not listed below (and found directly on the BA site) do not allow for early departure or remote completion; Study abroad students are not guaranteed admission to BA courses found directly on their website and must request special permission from the TAUI Academic Team for consideration.

Please also note that many times classes in Israel are written “to the nearest hour”, meaning you may see a course that meets from 10:15-11:45 written as 10:00-12:00. In this case, the course starts at 10:15, and ends at 11:45. Below we will write the course times as they actually are.
