The M.A. in Jewish Studies at Rutgers University is designed for those seeking to advance their knowledge at a graduate level as preparation for doctoral-level work in Jewish Studies, or for careers in other fields such as education, communal service, library science, and public affairs. This program would afford non-traditional students and those individuals shifting from other disciplines the opportunity to strengthen their candidacy for admission to top ranked Ph.D. programs in Jewish Studies. Students, particularly educators and professionals working in Jewish communal fields, may pursue the M.A. part-time. Rutgers’s program draws on the strength of its faculty in areas such as Jewish History, Bible, Jewish Literature and Cultural Studies, Religious Studies, Yiddish, and Israel Studies.
Students will be exposed to a variety of methodologies used in the field of Jewish Studies, including historical, literary, philosophical, philological, anthropological, and sociological methods of analysis.
