The International Master’s Degree (M.A.) Program in Jewish Studies at the University of Haifa
 
Located at the top of Mt. Carmel with the north of Israel spread at its feet – Haifa University excels in the study of the Humanities with a strong social commitment. In recent years the University has reaffirmed its obligation for excellence in Jewish studies by reorganizing the department and expanding its faculty. Its unique location at the North of Israel facilitated the University's special expertise in regional studies: Archeology, Sociology and History of the Galilee; Maritime Archeology; (Mt. Carmel's) Pre-historical studies; and Mediterranean Studies.
The Department of Jewish History and Thought at this University is proud to announce a new international Master’s degree (M.A.) program in Jewish History and Thought. The department offers a unique combination in Judaic studies. It combines Biblical Studies, Jewish History, Philosophy and Mysticism in one setting. It ranges over biblical times to the modern one, housing experts in Biblical studies (including the Dead Sea Scrolls), Antiquity (early and late), Middle Ages, Early Modern and Modern Jewish History and Thought. At present the department offers a Master's degree in Jewish History and Thought (in Hebrew) to more than two hundred students annually, thus it has gained an unparalleled experience in the field.
