The Judaic Studies Graduate Certificate is a stand-alone Certificate Program within The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies.
Graduate Certificate Program students may be enrolled concurrently in a graduate degree program in another department, but they are not required to do so.

Graduate certificates are designed to enhance the education of graduate or professional students or to provide continuing education to professionals. They are not the equivalent of Masters degrees.  However, it may be possible to transfer some graduate certificate credits to a Masters program at The University of Arizona or elsewhere.

The certificate program requires 15 credit hours, or 5 courses. JUS 596A Core Seminar: Approches to Jewish Studies is required, and the other 4 courses can be chosen from the list in the side bar.

The Graduate Certificate Program has three foci

  • History and Culture of Ancient Israel
  • Modern Jewish History and Culture
  • Gender and Jewish Studies
