The University of Haifa has been chosen by California State University as its only approved study abroad program in Israel
Almost a decade (nine years) after suspending its study abroad opportunities for students wanting to study in Israel, California State University has reinstated the program and chosen the University of Haifa as its location of its study abroad students in Israel.
The Cal State Study Abroad Program is being reinstated in Israel after it was suspended in 2002 due to security concerns.
Prof. Hanan Alexander, Dean of Students and Head of the International School added, “Today the International School in Haifa hosts over 800 students each year from over 40 countries around the world in fall and spring semester programs, as well as summer and winter intensive language programs.
The campus of the University of Haifa stands atop the Carmel Mountain ridge southeast of the city of Haifa and is surrounded by the Carmel National Park. The University of Haifa is the largest research university in northern Israel.
The University houses six faculties (55 departments and 60 research centers): Humanities; Social Sciences; Natural Sciences; Law; Social Welfare and Health Sciences and Education; and numerous Schools including the Graduate School of Management, Social Work, History, Public Health, Political Sciences, the Graduate School of Creative Art Therapies and the Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences. Some 18,000 students are studying toward a degree (B.A., M.A., or Ph.D.) in 2011/12.
The University of Haifa has recently launched several international MA Programs taught in English: Peace and Conflict Management; Business Administration and Patent Law; Holocaust and Genocide Studies; Creative Arts Therapies; and Maritime Civilizations.
