TAU International has been significantly expanded and recast as the hub for all international activities at TAU – study programs, research partnerships, student exchange, visiting scholars and
conferences. The school is enabling TAU to share Israeli know-how with the world, strengthen the connection of young Diaspora Jews to Israel, and cultivate non-Jewish Israel advocates. TAU seeks to further expand, enrich and diversify enrolment and programming at the school.
Target: Creating at least 10 more degree programs taught in English, preferably with top international partners, within the next 5 years.
TAU International: An infusion of funding will enable it to expand enrolment, attract top students, introduce new study programs, provide better services, and become a “one-stop shop” for visiting faculty and students.
International Building: This beautifully-designed building will house classrooms and offices for TAU International, as well as an auditorium and other facilities for hosting diverse international academic and public activities on campus.
Planned International Building
Columbia-TAU Scholarship Fund supporting the Dual BA Program in Liberal Arts: Bringing the prestige of the Ivy League to TAU, this pioneering program must give out substantial scholarships to succeed. Students will spend two years at TAU followed by another two at Columbia and will receive BAs from both universities.
Master’s Programs: We have 19 English-taught master’s degree programs ranging from Middle Eastern Studies and Archaeology to Conflict Resolution and Diplomacy & Security Studies. Prices are varied.
New Undergraduate Programs: TAU is launching many more 1st degree programs, such as a BA in Management and a BSc in Environment and Earth Sciences. Each one requires about
$1-2 million per year for at least 5 years to get off the ground.
Graduate Student Exchange Fund: Will enable PhD and post-doc exchange between TAU and the donor’s home university for periods of 3-6 months, on a competitive basis, with the goal of strengthening long-term research ties.
SOLD TAU-Northwestern Executive LLM Program in Public and International Law: Offers a master’s in law in both Israel and the US to Israeli public sector legal professionals, who then apply their newfound knowledge toward enhancing Israel’s judicial system.
International Scholarship Fund (BA, MA, PhD and post-doc levels): Will help TAU attract the top candidates from abroad and diversify the student body; could target the donor’s home country.
