An MA or Master of Arts degree is often awarded after advanced study in a particular field, usually in the humanities or social sciences. It may or may not require a thesis to graduate, and the time for completion is typically from one to two years.

What is an MA in Hebrew? A master’s degree in Hebrew will typically not only give the student advanced ability in written and oral communication in that language but also provide further background of the culture from which it springs. This may include studying history, literature, philosophy, and religion, generally of Judaism and its people, but also of various time periods within which they have lived, such as the Middle Ages. General linguistics may also be part of the course of study.

Studying any language in depth can enhance one’s communication skills in general, which may be useful for any career and personal relationships. This degree can help a graduate achieve a greater level of cultural understanding for working in a multi-cultural organization or overseas. It can also enhance one’s mental flexibility, allowing for quicker decision making on the job and off.

There is often a lot of variation from one Master of Arts program to another, including courses offered, time to achieve the degree, as well as costs. Always make sure when comparing programs that all the fees are taken into consideration, not just the class cost per unit.

The many possible careers for someone with a graduate degree in Hebrew include translator, interpreter, researcher, or librarian. Among the types of companies that may hire for such positions include corporations with multinational divisions, law firms focusing on international relations, and universities. Those who have a calling to the rabbinical field may also find this a useful degree.

Whether you prefer the flexibility of online study or the interaction of studying on campus, there are usually Master of Arts programs offered throughout the globe. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
