Degree Requirements

Students may decide to take the program as full-time students, over the course of three semesters (including summer courses, October-August), or as part-time students, over the course of six semesters (including summer courses, October-August). The part-time schedule is recommended for students, usually Israeli students, with other full-time obligations.


There are two alternative tracks of study:

Track A consists of 32 credits (with a thesis), including core courses and electives. Track A students are also required to take a study a language, and to submit final and seminar papers in courses of their choice.*

A thesis, which is normally completed in the year following the completion of coursework, is recommended for those students planning to continue on to doctoral studies. 

Track B consists of 38 credits (without a thesis), including mandatory core courses and electives. Track B students are required to submit final and seminar papers in courses of their choice. Track B students also complete a final examination with an appropriate member of our faculty.*
