General

  • Mission:
  • The Leon Charney School of Marine Sciences is the newest research-intensive Graduate School founded at the University of Haifa in 2007.

    The increasing impact of global changes, combined with growing demand for marine resources, apply increased pressure on the marine and coastal environments. These raise the need for developing proactive responses on regional and global levels based on a truly interdisciplinary understanding of the oceans and their surroundings. The task requires a new generation of experts with a wide view in marine sciences.

  • History:
  • The University was established in 1963 under the joint auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Haifa Municipality. In 1972, it gained academic accreditation as a separate institution from the Council for Higher Education.

    The University of Haifa is the most pluralistic institution of higher education in Israel: sons and daughters of both veteran cities and development towns, kibbutzim and moshavim, new immigrants, Jews, Arabs, and Druzes, IDF officers and security personnel—all sitting together on the bench of knowledge in an atmosphere of coexistence, tolerance, and mutual respect.

    Some 17,000 students are studying toward a degree (B.A., M.A., or Ph.D.) in 2008/09. The University offers six Faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences and Science Education, Law, Social Welfare and Health Studies, and Education; and five Schools: Business Administration, Social Work, History, Public Health, and Political Sciences.

    The University new Arts Center building, the academic center for the study of the arts, designed by the noted architect Haim Kehat, occupies an area of 3,500 sq. meters over four stories. The curricula here are based on cooperation, theory, and joint and parallel creativity among the departments offering three fields of art studies: art, theater, and music. Work space in the center was planned specifically to provide students with optimal working conditions and to fulfill the special programs of study in these fields. Workshops, studios, and classrooms are all state of the art. The Arts Center was constructed with the aid of a donation from the Hecht Foundations and will be named for the late Dr. Reuven Hecht

    The Hecht Museum at the University of Haifa was the first in Israel to be located on a university campus. Its Archeological Wing displays finds from the Hecht Collection, as well as thematic exhibits: ancient industries and crafts; Phoenicians on the northern coast of Israel in the Biblical period. The Museum’s Ancient Ship Wing, devoted to the 2400-year-old vessel uncovered from off the coast of Kibbutz Maagan Mikhael, exhibits the hull of the ancient craft, an anchor, and some of its cargo. The Art Wing contains the Hecht Collection, which includes among others French Impressionist paintings and works from the Jewish School of Paris.

    The University also hosts a large IBM research center on its campus.
