Jewish Studies Graduate Diploma

About Program Degrees Offered and Application Requirements

Diploma programs are open to students in any relevant graduate program or to those who have a general interest in graduate-level work. For diplomas that are part of a graduate degree (concurrent), please contact the relevant graduate program office. For graduate diplomas that can be pursued on their own (stand-alone, direct entry), applications are submitted online. More

The program of study allows students enrolled in a graduate program to specialize formally in Jewish Studies and to be awarded a Graduate Diploma in Jewish Studies by the Faculty of Graduate Studies upon completion of all degree and diploma requirements.

The Diploma is intended to give recognition to those students who have undertaken a concentrated research and study program in the area of Jewish Studies. It is designed to provide students with interdisciplinary Jewish Studies methodologies.

The Diploma will be of special interest to students engaged in research in Jewish education, culture, and history, and on Israel and international relations.

The Diploma will be earned concurrently with the Master's or Doctoral degree program for which a student is registered.
