MPhil Hebrew Studies (Research)

MPhil Hebrew Studies (By Research)

An MPhil by research suits those graduate students who have specific research interests and who already possess some research training. During the year, MPhil students attend various training courses offered by the Department in codicology, text reading, and other skills. They are also encouraged to attend fourth year undergraduate lectures and language courses where relevant.

Before applying to this course, it is essential that you consult with a potential supervisor. A list of our academics, with brief biographies designed to give you an idea of their research interests, can be found here

Language Requirements

As with our taught MPhil in Hebrew Studies, students wishing to undertake an MPhil by research must have sufficient knowledge of Hebrew to read and use their primary sources.

Please see the Entry Requirements page for English language requirements. 

Assessment Structure

The MPhil Hebrew Studies (by research) is assessed by a thesis on a topic approved by the degree committee, which is subject to a 25,000-word limit (including footnotes and appendices but excluding bibliography). Students will also be required to sit a viva (oral examination) on their thesis and the general field in which it falls. 

To apply, see the University Admissions pages
