Bachelor of Science studies at the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment are varied, interdisciplinary and present many options to meet students' needs and interests.
The required general courses are studied during the first 3 semesters, and are common to all faculty students. These include introductory courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, statistics, biology and biochemistry. The remainder of the degree program takes place in the framework of “hugim”, or study areas, with courses chosen from the area of expertise of each study areas.
“Hativot Limudim” are frameworks of study shared by two or more “hugim”, consisting of bundles of courses intended to allow both focus and expansion of knowledge in areas of interest to students. Studies in a “hativat limudim” constitute a sub-specialisation in addition to the specialisation provided by the “hug” and will be noted on the student’s transcripts and diploma.
The faculty offers honours undergraduate students the option of doing research through the Amirim program. A student accepted to Amirim will complete a bachelor’s degree and carry out a research program under the guidance of a faculty member in his hug. The research project will comprise 25% of the bachelor’s degree.
A list follows of the study areas available for BSc studies.
In each “hug” there are several possible study tracks to choose from.
