The Department offers its students full academic freedom to explore possible directions for activity, thought and creation – to refine their ability to think critically and observe analytically. The rich spectrum of courses encourages them to develop knowledge of work methods that help them gain technical skills and the opportunity to study both theoretical and practical concepts. 

To help understand photography’s global rebirth and the unusual magnitude of its growth and development, the curriculum integrates theoretical, historical and conceptual studies with hands-on technological practice covering a broad range of visual practices. Since photography is also defined by its cultural framework, the program also includes courses on the complex social and political environment of the Middle East.

In the last five decades, Bezalel’s Department of Photography has become recognized as the most prominent and prestigious photography department in the region. Its outstanding academic and professional training, combined with its geopolitical location in Jerusalem and the fact it is an integral part of Israel’s leading arts and design institute, have positioned it as a significant and influential component of the local and international photography world.
