Special Programs



The Honors Programs are designed for outstanding students who plan to continue studying towards advanced degrees in Israel or abroad. The programs span the second and third years of studies. The general Honors Program includes a seminar in which participants strengthen their analytic and research skills, as well as their proficiency in reading and writing scientific material in English and in writing a research honors thesis. The Brain and Mind Program includes an intensive apprenticeship in a neuroscience lab. Both tracks orient participants towards writing an empirical research article, to be submitted for publication to a scientific journal. The programs increase participants’ chances to be accepted for graduate studies at leading universities. 

Registration for the Honors Programs opens towards the end of the first undergraduate year, and is based on students’ achievements during that year.
