Tuition & funding
The MA in Judaic Studies combines elements of anthropology, rabbinics, gender studies and literary studies. Our faculty members are experts in a range of cultural traditions and are interested in the latest materials related to Judaic Studies. The program is especially relevant at a time when Quebec society is undergoing intense discussions surrounding its religious past and the meaning of diversity in relation to its particular identity and political history. The Department of Religions and Cultures is an excellent place to study such developments, as well as to attain skills that will help students find meaningful involvement in wider society. The program offers internships, in-house academic awards and language-focused support for students. Funding opportunities are available from independent centres at Concordia, including The Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies and The Institute for Quebec and Canadian Jewish Studies.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.

Funding packages are generally available for students in thesis-based programs. They come in the form of awards, teaching and research assistantships are offered at the time of admission to most students to allow them to focus on their research and studies. Research and thesis-based students are automatically considered for all entrance graduate awards when they apply to Concordia, provided they meet eligibility criteria. No separate application is required.
The Quebec and Canadian governments offer a number of competitive graduate scholarships. We encourage you to apply for these awards at the same time you are preparing your application.
