The graduate program in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree, is designed to train scholars and teachers in various areas of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. On the MA level, the department offers general and specialized programs. Three 5-year BA/MA programs are available to undergraduate majors in the department: A BA/MA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, a BA/MA in Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership, and a BA/MA in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. A two-year joint MA program is offered in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies & Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies as well as a joint MA in the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies (within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences) and the Graduate Program in Conflict Resolution and Coexistence (within the Heller School for Social Policy and Management). In addition, a two-year dual degree program leading to the MA in Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership and the MA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies is available. Learning Goals The learning goals of the Near Eastern and Judaic Studies Department encompass the three categories stressed in Brandeis University's general learning goals: Knowledge, core skills, and social justice. This statement of the learning goals of NEJS reflects our conviction that knowledge, values, and skills are often interconnected in the university and in the lifelong learning process as well--indeed that articulating skills and social justice as they are embedded in knowledge acquisition is, for us, the most useful and concrete way of formulating our objectives.
