2406 undergraduates and a record number of 2473 Master’s candidates received their degrees during conferment ceremonies held at the University of Haifa in early July.

“Wherever your road takes you, you are all our ambassadors, representing the University in a manner that exemplifies our academic excellence. We are proud of you for that!” said Amos Shapira, President of the University of Haifa.

The growing number of MA graduates every year symbolizes the University’s intention, as a research institution, to expand its number of research students.

The Dean of the Graduate Studies Authority, Prof. Itzhak Harpaz, congratulated the graduates and encouraged them to continue their studies at the University of Haifa, and complete a PhD degree.

757 students received Bachelor of Arts degrees from The Faculty of Humanities with 685 from The Faculty of Social Sciences.

“Our mission, as the largest research university in the north of Israel, is to cultivate the human capital that will lead this region in the future. When I look at you today, I know we have succeeded in this task”, said President Shapira.
