Overview

Welcome to the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies!

 

We offer a broad array of courses that form an integral part of the Institute’s program. Our courses combine various fields of knowledge, introducing students with intellectual worlds and research approaches that go beyond their core studies in the departmental programs. Through exposure to multiple academic areas and their intersections we provide our students with tools indispensable in the current world. The multidisciplinary courses at our department bridge between the fields of science and technology, design and computers, along with those of the humanities and social sciences. We truly believe that our courses – whether in philosophy or biomimicry, cultural studies, genetics or bioethics, politics or social robotics – will expand your horizons and enrich your intellectual and cultural outlook, as a future graduate of the Holon Institute of Technology.

 

The department’s courses are offered through
four clusters:

  1. Humanities and Social Sciences
  2. Integrated Technologies
  3. Community-Engaged Courses
  4. Entrepreneurship and Innovation
    (in collaboration with Future HIT)

 

 

 

 

Students are required to take between 6-10 credits in the Department's courses, depending on their home faculty's requirements. On this basis, we strive to contribute to the various academic programs by enriching our students with meaningful knowledge and methodologies.

 

Please note: Attendance is mandatory in all courses of our department. Students are advised to enroll in only one multidisciplinary course per semester, as all final exams of the department’s course are held on the same day.

 

We are strongly committed to academic production through publications, conferences, exhibitions, and cross-institutional cooperation. In all these channels we encourage our academic staff and students to employ and contribute to multidisciplinary perspectives.

 
 
Our Global Vision

 

As part of HIT's strategy to promote international collaborations, our department offers several courses taught in English as part of its curriculum. International exchange students visiting the Institute are most welcome to take these courses! In these courses students learn exciting multidisciplinary approaches, where design meets math, or Israeli politics and society cross with hi-tech. Intended for both local and international students, courses taught in English expand the array of skills students acquire, indispensable in the globalized world of the third millennium. They also serve as a wonderful opportunity for interaction and collaboration between local and international students at the Institute.

We promote collaboration with academic institutions in Israel and abroad, including grant applications, joint publications, Erasmus+ programs, international conferences and workshops.
