As a highly regarded, interdisciplinary graduate-level teaching department, the Cohn Institute attracts students from diverse academic backgrounds, driven by a strong desire to broaden their intellectual horizons as offered by the Institute.
Since its inception in 1983, the Institute’s students have completed close to 100 Ph.D. dissertations and more than 150 Master’s theses. Currently, the student body counts approximately 130 M.A. students and 40 Ph.D. candidates.
The academic background of our students divides between Humanities, Exact Science, Life Sciences, Arts, Social Science and Law.
