About The University of Haifa
The University of Haifa sits atop Mount Carmel with a view over Haifa Bay, the surrounding
Carmel National Park, and north to the mountains of the Galilee, and offers an aesthetic
learning environment. Established in 1963, the University's dual mission of first-rate
higher education and service to the community at large is manifested by providing
equal educational opportunities to all sectors of the society. Unique immigrant
absorption programs express this dual commitment. The culturally heterogeneous student
body adds to the stimulating intellectual atmosphere on campus. Some 17,000 students
are studying in six Faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences and Science
Education, Law, Social Welfare and Health Studies, and Education; and five Schools:
Business Administration, Social Work, History, Public Health, and Political Sciences.
Research at the University is fostered by a variety of centers, institutes, and
laboratories, which ponder vital questions of life and society and proffer solutions
that are not just academic. The University of Haifa is also home to the Hecht Archeological
Museum, situated on an Israeli campus.
