The program of study allows students enrolled in a graduate program at York University to specialize formally in Jewish Studies and to be awarded a Graduate Diploma in Advanced Hebrew & Jewish Studies by the Faculty of Graduate Studies upon completion of all degree and diploma requirements.

The graduate diploma is intended to give recognition to those students who have undertaken a concentrated research and study program in the area of Jewish Studies. It is designed to provide students with interdisciplinary Jewish Studies methodologies. The Diploma is of special interest to students engaged in research in Jewish education, culture, and history, and on Israel and international relations.

The graduate diploma will be earned concurrently with the master’s or doctoral degree program for which a student is registered. For those students who successfully complete both the degree program and the graduate diploma, the diploma is noted on the student’s transcript and awarded at the convocation at which the degree is awarded. According to Faculty of Graduate Studies policy, this graduate diploma cannot be earned independently of a degree.
