I want to be able check, given the name of a field or discipline, which Israeli academic institutions offer a Bachelor's degree in that field or discipline. Hopefully also whether it's a B.A., B.Sc. or otherwise (LL.B., B.Ed. and so on).

I realize some of this information can be gleaned from just a search engine; and of course one could visit each and every university and college and check. But - is there some kind of central directory/website/list?

  • Interesting question. In the US, this is impossible (too many institutions, no centralized data base - source: son applying to colleges). Israel perhaps not so much. A further issue would be if the name of the field were uniquely defined - some things get messy like 'materials science' vs 'metallurgy' vs 'ceramics' vs ...

  • @JonCuster: In Israel there are 6 universities (+ 1 grad-only research institute), and a couple dozes academic colleges offering Bachelor's degrees, so its quite doable theoretically.

  • Israel is about the scale that a dedicated person could do it, plus or minus keeping up with (annual?) changes. Still, it could be hard to get one-to-one correspondence between all programs. If all the universities are under a government ministry they might have some data?

  • That is too bad. Kind of weird too, since you probably aren't the first person who would like to easily find all the options for a particular field.

There is a searchable database of degree programs at the website of the Israeli Council for Higher Education (which governs the accreditation/recognition of such programs and conducts periodic academic evaluations of them).

The search keys are a free string for the degree name, an optional geographic region, and an optional "level" of degree: "First", "Second" or "Third" (effectively - Bachelor's, Master's, Doctoral).

For example, a search for First-level Math degree programs yields 81 results; some are pure Math, others are Applied Math, and others are Math Education.

Caveat: The search mechanism is in Hebrew, as are the results.
