Course content

First launched in 1997, the MA programme offers a rich encounter with the main currents in Jewish history and culture through the ages, drawing on and fostering the use of many different scholarly disciplines.

Introducing your course

Widen your intellectual horizons by exploring Jewish history and culture. The MA Jewish History and Culture masters degree features modules such as: The Jews of Egypt, Jerusalem: City and Symbol and The Holocaust in American Film. The MA Jewish History and Culture degree can lead to a wide selection of careers as an academic, working in museums, tour guide, Jewish community work, publishing and archiving.

Overview

Reflecting the heritage of James Parkes’ scholarship, on which the Parkes Institute is founded, the programme places a distinct and unique emphasis on studying Jewish History and Culture within the broad framework of the study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations. The course of studies builds on the world-class resources of the University’s Parkes Library and Jewish Archives in the University Library, and is taught by a well-established team of scholars drawn from disciplines including history, English, German and music, brought together within the Parkes Institute. The course also offers a partnership module in accordance with the London Jewish Culture Centre (LJCC).

The programme attracts students from a very varied range of backgrounds and academic interests. For many of these students, the MA provides the foundation for doctoral studies, but for many others the course offers other opportunities for professional and personal development in fields such as teaching, community relations or social work.
