The Graduate Diploma in Jewish Studies is of interest to lay and professional leaders in the Jewish community, to teachers and administrators in Jewish schools and to those with an interest in Jewish Studies who do not wish to earn a formal graduate degree. The graduate diploma provides an intellectual grounding for their activities and give them the information needed to put their leadership, teaching, and interests into a broader context.

This graduate diploma is not additional to a master’s or doctoral degree.  It is offered and granted by the Faculty of Graduate Studies in conjunction with the Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies. Students are admitted directly into the diploma. Students may fulfil the requirements of the graduate diploma through part-time study. Diploma requirements must be completed within four years of enrolment.
