Letter from the Department

Thank you very much for your interest in Jewish Studies at McGill.

The Department of Jewish Studies offers an ad hoc Phd and both thesis and non-thesis M.A. Programs. The thesis option is intended for students interested in the following areas: Eastern European History, Jewish Thought, Modern Jewish Literature, Hebrew Literature and History of Jewish Interpretation of the Bible. These areas are broadly construed to accommodate the range of research interests in the Department. The non‑thesis program permits students to acquire a generalist degree in Jewish Studies with advanced work in the areas of Jewish History, Jewish Thought and Jewish Literature.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your plans and to try to answer any questions that you might have. Please schedule a live or a virtual appointment with our Director of Graduate Studies (chris.silver [at] mcgill.ca) or wth our chair (yael.haleviwise [at] mcgill.ca).

Funding is awarded on a competitive basis to outstanding applicants. For information on current student fees, the availability of fellowships and awards to help finance graduate education, please visit the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office site: www.mcgill.ca/gps.
