There are two Masters level tracks of study offered by the Political Studies department at Bar-Ilan University. The first is a 2 year thesis track program. The second a non-thesis program.
Students who have a background in Political Studies from Bar-Ilan University or other accredited institutions can apply for the thesis track with an 86 GPA. Students who wish to apply for the non-thesis track need an 80 GPA.
Students who do not have a background in Political Studies will be required to take supplementary courses - which they must complete with a 72 GPA - to continue on for their MA. These courses are given in the summer prior to the commencement of the academic year.
