The literature track is designed to acquaint students with the English and American literary traditions, from their inception to the present. Our selection of courses aims to provide a broad understanding of British and American history, society, and culture, while simultaneously training students in critical and analytic thought. Courses on methodology and theory are at the base of our curriculum, which is further structured to enable choice between an emphasis on English (British) or American literature. Following the introductory courses of the first year, the program offers a wide range of elective courses taught by our international and multicultural staff. The courses cover diverse eras and disciplines, which include Medieval and Renaissance, Early and Late Modern, Postcolonial and Postmodern, Contemporary Poetics and Aesthetics.
Students who pursue courses of a longer duration (such as English Literature courses or courses taught in Hebrew) will be charged additional fees for their extended stay in the dorms.
Tuition includes excursions, activities, facility fees, and health insurance.
