The B.A. program in linguistics in our department is designed to give students a solid background in the core areas of phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, as well as in more applied areas such as psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. Studies in the department take place in English, but this is not the only language being studied; the approach in the department is that of general linguistics which aims to study human language and the human linguistic capacity. A B.A. in linguistics in our department provides students with the tools for analyzing any human language - English, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian or any other language.

Applicants should have a Psychometric score of at least 550; a score of 120 on the English Psychometric, or an Amir score of 220; and a Bagrut grade which includes 5 points in English. Alternatively, applicants with a Bagrut grade over 100 which includes 5 points in English with a grade of 85 or above and with an Amir grade of 220 or above may apply without a psychometric grade. You can use the online calculator to evaluate your chances of acceptance into the linguistics program. Applicants whose scores are only slightly below these levels might still be accepted on the basis of a departmental entrance exam.... [-]
