Knowledge and fluency in English is in high demand in all fields of work. Being an English teacher gives one an edge over others.
Our undergraduate program in English, trains our students to become English as a foreign language (EFL) teachers for elementary through to secondary school (grades 3-10). The program consists of four years of study and graduates are awarded a bachelor's degree (B.Ed.) and a teaching license. The degree opens up possibilities for our graduates to continue on to master's degree studies (M.A.) in all universities in Israel.
The English program provides students with extensive knowledge of the English language, with particular emphasis on applied skills, written and oral expression. Most of the courses are conducted in English, which enables students to improve and expand their English language knowledge and ability.
In addition to the academic degree and teaching license, graduates acquire life skills as well as two additional internal certificates:
- Leadership, negotiation and conflict management skills
- Certification of having studied Translation and Editing
- Certification of having studied Learning Disabilities in ESL
Classes in the first three years take place one and a half days on campus and half a day in practicum, in schools.
Emphasis is placed on practice teaching in schools and student training. Starting from the first year of studies, students do fieldwork (practicum) in schools under the close supervision of the pedagogical training staff. The curriculum for the fourth year of study includes a teaching internship, enabling students to earn a Ministry of Education teaching license.
Throughout the years of study, the students enjoy the professionalism and complete support of the English Department Team.
Scholarships are available from the Ministry of Education.
