The University of Haifa, the only liberal
arts university in northern Israel, serves a student body that is the most pluralistic in the country. Most students study within the framework of one of six Faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences and Mathematics, Law, Education, Social Welfare and Health Studies and Science and Science Education .
The verdent Mt. Carmel National Park surrounds the University campus. The view over Haifa Bay and north to the mountains of the Galilee offers a most pleasant learning environment.
Ensconced within this natural setting are the Campus buildings, with the new Rabin Building being the flagship. Modern classrooms with top class teaching aids render a superb atmosphere. With all these remarkable features and services, it's no wonder that more than 13,000 students have gathered here to attain their academic degrees.
The Safdie Auditorium hosts conferences, seminars and other assemblies held at the University. A constant stream of researchers, domestic and foreign, congregate here to investigate and learn of others experience and discoveries.
Off to a lunch break? A dozen cafeterias and diners, from Chinese to Italian to middle-eastern, offer a definite solution for the gastronomical minded. If you're finished, we can continue on our course.
The Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum's permanent archaeological exhibition is based on the private collection of the late Dr. Reuben Hecht, which he donated to Haifa University. The exhibition concentrates on the subject of "The People of Israel in Eretz Israel". Items on the lower floor are displayed in chronological order, beginning with the Chalcolithic period and ending with the Mishnaic and the Talmudic Era (Roman and Byzantine periods). The upper floor is devoted to thematic displays, such as coins, seals, weights and jewelry. A central exhibition consists of finds from the excavations of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Among community projects initiated by the University are several having as their objective the encouragement of mutual understanding and cooperation between the Jewish and Arab populations on and off campus. The latter is an area in which the University of Haifa has been a pioneer
and leader in the cause of peace.
