In the School of Education research is conducted into all areas of education, and the following degrees are offered: BA, MA (thesis and non-thesis tracks) and Ph.D. In addition we offer teacher education and professional development in several areas: a program of studies toward a teaching certificate, teaching practicum, and professional development for educators in the field. The School of Education at Bar-Ilan University is the largest of its kind in Israel, with over 2,000 students. Approximately a third of these are BA students, a third are studying for advanced degrees and a third are studying in the teacher education program. In addition, every year approximately 2,000 educational professionals, including teachers, counselors, principals and supervisors, participate in our professional development programs.
