Chemistry serves the basis for many diverse aspects of everyday life, and is a crucial aspect of many of the natural sciences, including biology, medicine, computer science and electronics, geology, and agriculture.

Chemistry is an applied science, as seen in the development and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs, material engineering, nanotechnology, and more. But no less importantly, chemistry is also a fundamental science that investigates the basic principles of nature and how these relate to changes in matter through understanding the nature of chemical bonding, molecular interactions, etc.

Chemistry is also at the heart of Israel’s industry, ranging from traditional chemical industry, through the food, textile, pharmaceutical industries, all the way to forensic science.

The Hebrew University is a leading institution in all these fields of chemical research. The courses are delivered by first rate lecturers and researchers, and our students have a chance to learn first-hand about state of the art research from premier experts in Israel
