|המרכז האקדמי שלם|
Shalem College (Hebrew: המרכז האקדמי שלם, ha-Merkaz ha-Akademi Shalem) is Israel's first liberal arts college, located in Jerusalem, Israel. It was established in January 2013, following accreditation by the Council for Higher Education in Israel.
A private, undergraduate degree-granting institution, Shalem College will pioneer the use of a required core curriculum for all students. The centerpiece of the college’s academic community, the Core—which includes courses in philosophy, history, the natural and social sciences, literature, and the fine arts—will be unique in its integration of the study of key Western and Jewish texts.
The college will also follow the Great Books model, in which students are required to read sources directly, and in the context of small, participatory seminars. In its first year, students will choose from two possible majors: Philosophy and Jewish Thought, or Middle East and Islamic Studies.
The list of intended faculty includes the philosopher and ethicist Asa Kasher, co-author of the IDF’s Code of Conduct; the jurist and human-rights activist Ruth Gavison; the renowned scholar of Jewish thought Shalom Rosenberg; and the noted historian of Zionism Ehud Luz. The distinguished scholar of the Middle East Martin Kramer has been appointed to serve as the college’s first president.
Shalem plans to accept candidates on the basis of exams, intellectual capabilities, and demonstrated commitment to public service. Accepted applicants will receive substantial financial aid packages.
