2,468 undergraduates and a record 2,614 Master’s candidates received degrees during conferment ceremonies held on the Mt. Carmel Campus of the University of Haifa at the end of June.
“During your studies you acquired quite a bit of knowledge,” said University President Amos Shapira at one of the graduation ceremonies.” and I am convinced that each and every one of you is leaving here today knowing more than you did at the beginning of your studies.”
“But,” the President continued, “I hope that you got much more than knowledge and facts: the ability to think critically, write, reach conclusions and know how to use those conclusions in completely different cases – that is the main gift that we here at the University of Haifa can give you.”
2014 marked the first time that degrees were granted to students of international programs.
