The aim of the mandatory courses of the Department of English as a Foreign Language is to help students develop the abilities to become independent, critical readers and writers of academic material in English. In addition, students are exposed to lectures on academic subjects in English and encouraged to develop their verbal English skills.
The courses are given on all four university campuses: Mount Scopus, Edmond S. Safra campus, Ein Kerem and Rehovot. The texts used in each course are selected from current academic journals and books relevant to the areas of studies of the participating students.
In addition to these courses, the department also provides academic writing courses at the MA and PhD levels. These courses are designed to suit the specific requirements of the various schools or faculties and the needs of the students.
