The Department of Education at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev reflects the dynamic character of the ethnically and culturally diverse Negev region.
The 21 faculty members – many internationally known scholars in their fields –represent diverse disciplines in the study of education. These include social philosophy, educational leadership, critical sociology, educational counseling, and psychology, as well as the teaching of the sciences.
More than 700 students study in the Department: half are undergraduates and half take part in the various MA programs or are PhD students. In addition, more than a thousand students participate in professional development programs that include teacher and principal certification programs. Courses of study are offered in Hebrew only.
