Welcome to the University of Haifa
The University of Haifa is one of Israel’s leading research universities, the largest in the north. It is a microcosm of Israeli society dedicated to academic excellence and social responsibility.
An exciting and inspiring cultural mosaic, the university has a diverse population of 18,000 students made up of secular and religious Jews, Christians and Muslim Arabs, Druze and Bedouin, new immigrants and native Israelis and a growing number of students from around the world. We invite you to become one of them.
The Department of Archaeology, founded in 1983, is an interdisciplinary department that combines archaeological sciences, environmental archaeology and bio-anthropological courses in research-oriented programs.
The International MA program, which specializes in Prehistoric Archaeology, provides students with an opportunity to take part in ongoing research of the impressive prehistoric archaeology of the southern Levant, with particular emphasis on Mount Carmel. The program enables students to finish their coursework in one year. The students are encouraged to write a thesis in a second year.
