Course summary

About the course

The MSt in Yiddish Studies is designed to enhance the linguistic proficiency, academic competence, and cultural literacy of aspiring scholars, instructors and educators in the field of Yiddish language and literature. The MSt in Yiddish Studies is suitable both for candidates wishing to proceed to a research degree and for those who wish to spend only one year at Oxford.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages.

Assessment

The course is assessed through a dissertation of 8,000-10,000 words on a subject proposed by the candidate in consultation with their supervisor. Students are not required to sit any examinations.

Graduate destinations

Many MSt students proceed to doctoral degrees at Oxford or at other universities. Other graduate destinations include teaching, journalism, law, publishing and the civil service.
