Masters degrees in Judaism involve advanced study of the Jewish faith, including its scared texts, literature, history and languages.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Biblical Studies, Hebrew Studies and Jewish Studies. Programmes usually award MA or MRes degrees, but in some cases you may receive a Master of Theology (MTh) or an MSc.
As one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, Judaism has a rich history spanning more than 3,000 years. By studying its traditions, sacred texts and philosophical foundations, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of a fascinating religion.
Postgraduate courses in Jewish Studies often take a broad, interdisciplinary approach to Judaism. This means you might take modules in topics as varied as Yiddish literature, the Holocaust and Arab-Israeli relations, providing you with a well-rounded view of the subject.
An important part of many programmes is a language component, where you take lessons in Biblical Hebrew, Modern Hebrew or Yiddish, enabling you to study texts in their original form.
Careers with a Masters in Judaism are diverse, and you could find work in heritage, diplomacy or a non-governmental organisation (NGO), to give a few examples. Alternatively, you could enter the clergy or carry on your studies to PhD level.
