The core curriculum of the program focuses on ancient Judaism, with courses in language, Bible and Midrash/Talmud. These courses enable students to develop in-depth knowledge and tools in the study of Classical Jewish sources in the first semester. During the next two semesters of their studies, students may choose electives in the fields of medieval and modern Judaism offered from within the program, as well as up to 2 courses from the English language programs offered by TAU. These include biblical archeology, Israel studies, and Middle Eastern history. Students will receive personal guidance from program advisors on their choice of electives.
Courses from our regular Masters program at the Hebrew Culture Studies department are also open to students who are fluent in Hebrew.
General Courses from the program for Overseas Students will be available for students based on the academic discretion of the academic coordinator.
