About the Department
We are deeply committed to maintaining an academic environment that fosters intellectual and personal growth, promotes critical thinking and emphasizes interdisciplinary perspectives. Our distinguished professors work with highly motivated students to create a vibrant community of scholars dedicated to academic excellence.
The Honors curriculum is based on high-impact educational practices and is fully integrated with the college’s B.A. track. It includes an interdisciplinary Honors course and a capstone research project completed under the supervision of a senior professor during the third year of study. Honors students also participate in various annual events and activities, including the Honors Conference, the Faculty Research Fair, the Honors educational excursion, and more.
Honors students receive a Certificate of Participation in the Honors Program.
YVC and its faculty in the Honors B.A. program invest significant energy and resources in establishing and maintaining ongoing academic dialogues with colleagues outside of Israel. These academic interactions keep professors and students abreast of new developments, expand their horizons of inquiry and encourage collaborative research and applied projects.
In addition to engaging in dozens of ongoing collaborations in the United States and Europe, YVC is a partner in the IRIS project, a European Union initiative aimed at fostering stronger ties between Israeli academic colleges and European academic institutions.
