Graduate Certificate in Jewish Studies

The Jewish Studies Program offers a Graduate Certificate in Jewish Studies.

In order to be eligible for the Jewish Studies Certificate Program a student must be accepted into or currently enrolled in a master's or doctoral degree program at the University of Maryland.

Students must take four graduate level courses (12 credits) in Jewish studies. At least six of the 12 credits must be in a different discipline than the student's home department. All students take JWST600: “General Seminar in Jewish Studies,” plus at least two other graduate readings or research courses at the 600-800 level. Only one 400-level course can count toward the certificate. Students must work with an advisor to determine which courses best suit their particular needs.
