Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program (MALS)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Jewish Studies is a multi-disciplinary intellectual endeavor committed to the dispassionate investigation of every aspect of Jewish culture, history, religion and society. As a building block of Western civilization, as a touchstone for thinking about the critical issues that face humanity, Jewish studies adds an invaluable dimension and another way to view the universal through the particular. As a vibrant and growing field, Jewish Studies offers a rigorous, dynamic and theoretically informed body of scholarly work that is integral to the academic enterprise. J ewish Studies encompasses virtually all disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The Jewish Studies track in MALS is inherently inter-disciplinary. It will encourage students to construct their own program of study that combines courses in Jewish Studies with courses in other tracks to create intellectually coherent and challenging modules.
