About

Since 1975, this Jewish-Christian(M.A.) program offered by Seton Hall University has taught students the history, theology, ethics and scriptures of the Jewish and Christian faiths.

Overview

Students develop a critical awareness of the relationship between Jews and Christians — and learn to address complex religious, ethical and social issues to promote justice and peace. Graduates are prepared for doctoral biblical and religious studies, or for any facet of interreligious and multicultural relations, dialogue and diplomatic encounters — from teaching to ecumenical administration to seminary. The first of its kind in the United States, this degree offers both a thesis and a non-thesis option.

The programme

This program offered by Seton Hall University aims to build an internationally diverse community of leaders, scholars, educators and students. As a result, our curriculum covers all aspects of the relationship between Jews and Christians — including their values and traditions. Courses emphasize the interdisciplinary study of sacred texts, and place them in their historical and socio-religious world context. Thesis students complete 36 credits, including six in the reading of Hebrew texts. Non-thesis students also complete 36 credits, and must demonstrate a basic knowledge of biblical Hebrew. There are numerous course options, including Cross-Cultural Analysis for Jewish-Christian Studies, Medieval Jewish Thinkers and Teachings of Jesus.
