Overview

The multidisciplinary Environmental Quality Sciences program at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is taught by academic staff from the Robert H. Smith Faculty's Environmental Quality and Natural Resources in Agriculture department and the Agricultural Research Center's Volcani Institute. 

Teaching

The courses cover broad areas of scientific research, such as: environmental microbiology, ecology, soil and water, economics, weed control, botany and plant protection. 

The common denominator of these diverse fields is the goal to understand and promote processes that affect and improve the quality of the environment and nurture a sustainable agricultural environment for future generations.

The one-year Environmental Quality Sciences programme at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem  leads to a non-thesis Master of Science in Agriculture majoring in Environmental Quality Sciences. After successful completion of the first year, qualified graduates can be reviewed for admission to the thesis track for a second year of studies to earn a thesis degree, and continue for a PhD degree either in Israel or elsewhere. 

Upon completion of their studies, the majority of alumni return to their home countries, where they hold key positions in industry, education, academics, research, NGOs and government organizations.
