Course summary

The MPhil in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies by Research (Hebrew Studies) is a one-year research Masters which gives graduate students an opportunity to pursue an extended research project on some aspect of Hebrew Studies.

By the end of their degree, graduates will be able to work independently to design research projects, and will have an in-depth knowledge of the primary sources and secondary literature in their chosen specialism in Hebrew Studies.

They will be very well placed to study for a PhD, and will also be in a position to use their skills and knowledge of Hebrew in other professions and activities where advanced research skills and independent critical thinking, analysis and communication skills are needed.

The Hebrew Studies research pathway develops its graduates' ability to develop a research project, to research independently using Hebrew language sources and the related secondary literature, and to communicate those findings effectively.

Graduates also develop their ability to read, interpret and translate primary sources in Modern and/or Medieval Hebrew, acquire a good knowledge of current scholarship on modern and/or pre-modern Hebrew culture(s), and acquire an in-depth knowledge of the secondary literature relevant to the subject of their thesis.
