You hear and read about Europe and the European Union all the time. Some of you have visited Germany, Austria or France so many times that you can almost call it your second home; some of you would like the opportunity to see more European locations. Whether you wish to widen your knowledge about this continent, to gain theoretical and practical skills that will help you build a career in governmental, public or private institutions, or to become a researcher of Europe – The European Forum at the Hebrew University is the place for you!

The Forum’s MA programs in European Studies and in Contemporary Germany: Politics, Society and Culture are taught by outstanding lecturers who specialize in interdisciplinary approaches. Furthermore, our cooperation with leading European institutions encourages and supports students in striving for academic and professional excellence:

  • We are the only academic institution in Israel to offer separate graduate programs in European Studies and in Contemporary Germany.
  • We provide the educational tools for academic writing already during the MA studies.
  • We support our students financially, and provide excellence and tuition scholarships.
  • We believe that researching Europe means as much exposure as possible to the culture, languages and people. Hence we offer various educational  trips to Germany, Austria and the EU institutions in Brussels, as well as scholarships for intensive language courses abroad.
  • We combine theory with practice and offer our MA students internships related to their field of study.
