Dean’s Greeting



The Faculty of Social Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is a vibranttmyr_shpr intellectual hub. Over the past decade we have undergone an extensive process of renewal that has impacted all aspects of faculty life. On this site you can read about: our bold, groundbreaking research; our various cutting-edge curricula; our theoretical and practical courses designed for today’s dynamic world; our innovative teaching methods; and, above all, our profound understanding that teaching and research cannot be detached from the world outside the university.


This process of renewal can also be seen in the construction of new classrooms and research laboratories and in the hiring of brilliant young researchers. We will continue to attract the best and brightest students in the country and commit to providing them with a challenging and enriching learning experience.

I am happy to welcome you to Israel’s leading Social Sciences Faculty, ranked in the 51-75 group (Shanghai Ranking 2018), and one of the top faculties outside the US.

Our research, teaching, and energetic intellectual atmosphere constitute the soil which nurtures future scholars and leaders.



Prof. Tamir Sheafer
