The MSt in Classical Hebrew Studies spans across one teaching year, namely from October to June. While it is a master’s degree on a stand-alone basis and may be taken by those with no future study plans beyond that point, it is designed especially for those with a basic knowledge of Biblical Hebrew (perhaps learned as part of a Theological or Biblical Studies degree) who wish to extend and deepen their linguistic and textual competence as a preparation for research. The teaching takes two main forms. Firstly, there are classes on the specified texts and on advanced Hebrew language throughout the year, which students are strongly recommended to attend as a matter of priority. There may also be classes on students’ optional subjects, depending on what they are (Aramaic, for instance, is taught in this way). Secondly, students will receive individual supervision, usually for an hour each week, for which they are expected to prepare written work based on recommended reading.
