Program for Graduate Students

Starting in Fall 2012, Carolina introduced a Jewish Studies certificate program for graduate students.  This is the first certificate program of its kind at any college or university in North Carolina, and it is offered in conjunction with similar efforts at Duke University.

“We already have many graduate students who are taking coursework and conducting research in the various academic disciplines related to Jewish Studies with the intention of gaining greater expertise in the field,” said Jonathan Hess. “This program provides the recognition they are due while establishing clear guidelines for any student wishing to pursue a graduate-level certificate in Jewish Studies.”

The program is available to degree seeking graduate students studying in the  humanities and social sciences at Carolina.  It includes opportunities for graduate students to explore Jewish languages,  culture, literature and history in both their coursework and research endeavors.

Certificate requirements include:
• Completing three graduate-level courses on a topic related to Jewish Studies.
• Submitting a major seminar paper or a section of a broader thesis or dissertation on a topic related to Jewish Studies.
• Demonstrating relevant language skills either by taking advanced language courses or by using primary language texts in a major research project.
