The English Department at the Hebrew University offers a dynamic and prestigious program for the systematic study of Anglophone literatures. Our focus is on the British and American traditions supplemented by insights into South African, Canadian and Irish literatures. We pride ourselves on the high level of our Seminars and on the international reputation of our researchers.
Discussions of the artistic achievements of literary works, along with the issues that the works raise, create an enriching intellectual experience conducive to high-quality writing on a variety of subjects.
Students come to the department with a broad range of interests and aspirations; some students view academia as their calling while others complement vocational studies in law, business or psychology with the development of language and writing skills and an education in the humanities, which greatly contribute to their personal and professional development.
