with courses that interest me, professors who care, and amazing friends from all over
the world! It’s a wonderful environment, a beautiful campus, and a great place to study!”

“I chose to study English literature at Bar-Ilan University because of the excellent reputation of
the professors. Students receive a lot of encouragement to develop and follow their individual
interests within the field, and the faculty displays an appreciation of each student’s individual
background and motivations. If you’re looking for a customizable learning experience,
guided by true literature enthusiasts who can help you develop a personal passion for
your studies, then this is a great option.” / Tess Miller, New Jersey, US / English Literature
