The Social Sciences in Israeli Universities are Getting a Failing Grade

01.10.15

Editorial Note

Recently, QS, the highly respectable comparative measures in tertiary education, published its result. The QS employs a number of criteria to evaluate the standing of a university as a whole which are further broken down by disciplines: 1) arts & humanities 2) engineering & technology 3) life sciences & medicine 4) natural sciences 5) social science and management.

 

None of the Israeli universities made it into the first hundred (out of eight hundred). In general, Hebrew University is ranked 148 and Tel Aviv University 203, but the status of the social sciences is particularly troubling.  Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University social sciences are ranked respectively 236 and 280.   Social sciences at Haifa University and Ben Gurion University did not even make into the first four hundreds category.


To understand how bleak the situation is, here are some comparative numbers from public universities (known as state universities) in the United States.  Berkeley and UCLA – both in the California university system, are ranked 9 and 19 respectively and University of Michigan at 33.  To find the equivalents for HUJ, one needs to search among third of fourth tier public universities, such as University of California, Irvine at 236 and University of Massachusetts, Amherst at 233.  Social sciences at TAU compare with University of Arizona at 275.


The comparisons with social sciences at British universities (which are all virtually public) make for an equally gloomy reading. Oxford and Cambridge are ranked 3 and 4 respectively.  So much for HUJ being the Israeli “Oxbridge.” In fact, HUJ is close to Loughborough University at 242 and TAU to Kent University 281, both quite pedestrian institutions.  


There are numerous reasons for the poor performance of the social sciences in Israel, including lack of accountability, outmoded curricula, a paucity of quantitative approaches, and preponderance of critical, neo-Marxist faculty.  The latter is apparently related to the failure of the social science at Haifa U and Ben Gurion U, to make into the first 400.  


As IAM often emphasized, the Israeli universities enjoyed an expansive form of academic freedom, a form that is not tolerated in public institutions in the West.  All efforts to reform the system were met with the argument that imposing accountability and sound management would hurt “academic excellence.”


The ranking below clearly shows this argument to be specious.   If the amount of academic freedom was in a way related to academic excellence, the Israeli social sciences would have been at the top.  The only way to improve this abysmal situation is to force upon the Israeli universities the type of reforms which helped public institutions in the West to achieve true academic excellence.
