The University of Haifa International School is excited to announce that we will be adding an MA in Jewish Studies to our extensive list of English masters’ programs!
This October, under the auspices of the Department of Jewish Studies and the Faculty of Humanities, students may explore the fields of Biblical and Talmudic Studies, Jewish History, Philosophy and Mysticism, atop beautiful Mt. Carmel. Students will be able to study the depths of Judaism from a place where the religion took its roots, and is still growing, evolving, thriving and changing.
With northern Israel sprawling in our background, the program will place a special emphasis on this region of the country. Students will learn about the history and culture of the Galilee and other local surroundings. Over the course of the program students will participate in several educational excursions, visiting some of Israel’s main historical sights, which will give them first hand exposure to compliment lessons of the classroom.
At the same time, students will gain skills to interact with the Jewish Studies of today’s world, a field oscillating between modern and ancient, as well as local and global breadth.
