Curriculum Objectives

Sociology and Anthropology are two complementary fields. One addresses issues related to the infrastructure of society, and the other explores the infrastructure of social culture. These disciplines provide tools for understanding human and societal behavior.
The curriculum provides knowledge and tools to comprehend, research and analyze social phenomena, exposing students to diverse areas of societal life.
The curriculum is geared to students wishing to integrate into organizations involved in these spheres, individuals interested in the academic aspects of sociology and anthropology, and those wishing to gain tools for understanding the social and cultural reality in Israel and the world.


The syllabus exposes students to a broad range of topics: organizational behavior, organizational structure, human resources, Israeli society and its culture, social psychology, religions in Israel and worldwide, gender, and Middle Eastern issues.

Studies allow combinations from two disciplines and can be combined with: criminology, psychology, politics and governance, Land of Israel studies, and tourism.

Integrating with an additional discipline expands the foundation of knowledge, which allows students to continue to advanced degrees suited to a wide array of professions.
