Study

Our programmes offer a broad selection of modules that enable students to develop varied interests and research from an academic staff who are leaders in their fields. 

Hebrew language and Jewry past and present are essential components of our degree programmes, but we also survey political relations and conflict, and studies in both modern and ancient languages.  We welcome students of all ages, ethnicity, and religion. 

We are a tight knit and diverse department, thriving on collaboration and a global staff and student body.

Wolfson Scholarships will be awarded solely on academic merit. Ideally, the successful students would aspire to an academic career.
