Information regarding Covid-19 and the International MA Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation
The situation in Israel with regards to COVID-19 has drastically improved. The number of hospitalizations remain very low because a high percentage of the Israeli public is fully vaccinated and the changed nature of the Omicron variant. Tel Aviv and Israel are fully open. The first semester of 2021 was taught in the classroom and we expect to remain the classroom from now on.
It is too early to know exactly what the Israeli Ministry of Health's policies and guidelines will be for October 2022, or what the status will be with regards to international travel, but the program is planning to provide in-class instruction and students are expected to be able to enter Israel, and remote online instruction for those who are unable to enter the country because of possible travel restrictions. Online learning will be provided for as long as is required with no repercussions to the students.
Academically, the program remains the same. We offer all courses that are required in the program and provide a full selection of electives, seminars and workshops based on the needs of our students. We have organized multiple educational trips within Israel so that students can experience different aspects of conflict resolution in the field.
The university is constantly monitoring the situation of Covid-19 and prepared for any eventuality. Our students' health is our main concern, and as such, we are focused on and working hard to ensure that any changes we may need to make maintains the academic excellence and authenticity of the program.
