The program is designed for students to finish in either one or two years, depending on the course load they choose. (Studying beyond two years requires special permission.)
The M.A. consists of 36 credits, of which 26 credits will be offered as distance courses: two or four semesters taught online via distance learning (Distance-learning courses include some synchronous classes to be taught by ZOOM); and 10 credits on-site at Hebrew University in the form of a four-week, intensive Summer Semester.
The program includes mandatory and elective courses. Each student can build his or her own program according to his or her academic and personal interests.
In addition to course requirements, participants must submit two seminar papers. The Masters Blended Program does not include the writing of a thesis, which is normally a prerequisite for admission to a Ph.D. program at Hebrew University.
All courses, content and discussions are conducted in English. Spanish- and Portuguese-speakers are invited to join our separate M.A. program in those languages; more information is available here.
Students of the International M.A. enroll in one of the two tracks offered by the program.
