Curriculum and Course Load

The courses will be divided into three chronological cohorts: Biblical; Antiquity (Rabbinics); and Medieval through the Modern period. In order to obtain a Master degree the student will need to accumulate 36 credits (usually in three semesters: Fall; Spring and Summer\or Fall).The student may chose to focus on one cohort (with, nevertheless, a few courses from other cohorts) or to divide his studies between the three.

Following are examples of the courses we propose for 2020-2021, most of them are of 4 credits (two semesters) but some are of 2 credits (one semester) (this is a tentative list, depending on enrollment):
