The Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee (Hebrew: המכללה האקדמית כנרת בעמק הירדן), or simply Kinneret College, is a college located on the southern shores of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel.
The College was established in 1965 by the regional council of the kibbutzim in the area. The students in the College come from all parts of Israel but especially from the Galilee. This is reflected in the multi-cultural and multi-faith background of the student population: Jewish and Arab, secular and religious.
The College has been affiliated with the Bar Ilan University for many years and continues to award Bar Ilan degrees in the social sciences and humanities. However, since 2004 the College has also had independent academic status and awards degrees in a number of fields of Engineering, Communication Studies and Management of Tourism. Further courses are in an advanced stage of planning.
