Master of Arts applications received by January 15 will be given first consideration; however, applications will be considered through May 1. Additional information and application forms for all graduate programs may be obtained by contacting the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
Applicants are considered on a competitive basis, and the number of students admitted each year is kept small, thus maintaining the tradition of collegial, medium-sized program in which students and faculty are closely associated and to ensure as high a level of financial support as possible.

Master's Degree Programs
NEJS offers a range of master’s degree programs geared to the individual needs of students. Whether your interests are broad or narrow, our programs and course offerings will stretch you intellectually and teach you what you need to know to advance.

- Near Eastern and Judaic Studies

All NEJS graduate students (MA and PhD) are required to participate in a weekly graduate Proseminar during the fall semester and a biweekly noncredit Proseminar in the spring. The primary aims of the fall and spring Proseminars are to foster an intellectual and social community among NEJS graduate students, to introduce students to faculty members and methodologies of their respective fields, to develop their professional skills, and to provide opportunities for students to present their own papers and receive constructive feedback from peers and faculty.
