MA Jewish Philosophy and Religion
Master of Arts in Jewish Philosophy and Religion
In Oktober 2016 the Faculty of Humanities introduces a Master’s Program in Jewish Philosophy and Religion, the first subject program of its kind in Germany. The MA program covers a broad range of topics in the field of Jewish thought, from antiquity to the present. Jewish philosophy is thereby perceived within the framework of philosophy as well as a distinct phenomenon that evolved through exchange with other Jewish and non-Jewish intellectual traditions. The program places great emphasis on imparting the requisite language skills. Courses are taught in German, some in English.
Students are welcome to attend lectures and workshops organized by the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies and by PESHAT (Link), at which international scholars present the latest research in their fields. Credits for the Master’s program can be accepted after consultation with the office.
The Master’s program provides skills that can lead to employment in teaching and research at universities and colleges, in academic libraries and collections, museums, NGOs, national and international companies, or in the publishing sector.
You will find details about the Master’s program (Fachspezifische Bestimmungen) and terms of admission (Zugangsvoraussetzungen) here (in German). Students interested in applying should have a good command of English (level B2 or equivalent) and Ivrit (Ulpan level Beth or equivalent). Please contact the Campus Center to apply.
