The Philos Project is excited to partner with Yeshiva University to launch a new program in Hebraic Studies designed for Christians beginning in Fall 2023. The program centers around courses through the Bernard Revel Graduate School’s MA in Jewish Studies, available live online and in-person.
The program includes:
Immersive Hebrew courses (3 – one immersive in the preceding summer, followed by one more each semester)
2 Bible courses
2 Jewish history courses
1 course on post-Biblical literature
1 course on Jewish-Christian relations
Application: Applications for this program open November 30th, 2022 and close March 15th, 2023. Participants must fill out BOTH The Philos Project’s scholarship application (available below), and the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies Application (or you can go to the Revel homepage at https://www.yu.edu/revel and hit the “APPLY NOW” button).
Applications open November 30th, 2022 and close March 15th, 2023
Both Yeshiva University and The Philos Project are eager to provide Christian students with a firm grasp of the deep Jewish roots of Christianity, highlighting both shared values and real contrasts. A specific program for Christians through Revel’s Master’s program in Jewish studies can serve to promote deeper understanding for Christians of Jews and Judaism, and of the unique bond between the “people of the book” and the books we venerate, without compromising on the particularity of our respective faiths.
Both! If selected for the program, participants will have the option to attend classes in-person on Yeshiva’s campus (500 West 185th Street, New York, NY 10033), or live online via Zoom. As such, Philos and Yeshiva will not be covering housing costs for this program.
The tuition for the program currently stands at $34,950, plus a $240 fee each semester. If selected, participants will receive a scholarship from Yeshiva University and The Philos Project to cover 2/3rds of the program tuition ($23,300). The other 1/3rd will be the responsibility of the applicant.
Thus, the total cost of this one-year program for its participants will sit roughly at $11,650 + $480 in fees.
Christians within the realm of Nicene Orthodoxy of any age that have completed an undergraduate degree at an accredited institution are eligible to apply. Applicants may reside inside or outside of the US.
Participants in this program will receive a Master of Arts in Jewish Studies from the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University and a certificate in Hebraic Studies from The Philos Project.
No! Yeshiva University does not require the GRE or any other graduate entrance exam to apply to its programs.
Applications for this program are available beginning on November 30th, 2022 and are due by March 15th, 2023. Participants must fill out BOTH the Philos Project application (available on this page), and then the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies Application (or you can go to the Revel homepage at https://www.yu.edu/revel and hit the “APPLY NOW” button) to complete their application. When completing the application, you will select “Jewish Studies (MA) – Undeclared” as the program, “Philos” as the cohort, and “Summer 2023” as the entry term.
Participants would be enrolled as full-time students, which is 12 credits (4 courses) per semester. Classes for each course meet once a week for 2 hours.
