About the Department
Many of the major problems society faces today can only be addressed by integrating the knowledge of different academic disciplines. Our faculty teach and research across disciplines, giving our department a practical advantage in addressing the multifaceted and multicultural issues of the twenty-first century.
Our Department of Multidisciplinary Social Sciences has the largest student enrollment at Max Stern Yezreel Valley College. We offer a unique program of core studies in the humanities for the entire college, with cultural studies at the center of the program.
Students who complete the program earn a B.A. in Multidisciplinary Social Sciences and a second major of their choice .
Our department is active in international research collaboration within academia and industry. We 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.
