About

This Jewish Studies in the Graeco-Roman Period course offered at the University of Oxford  aims to provide a good general knowledge of Jewish history, the period of the Second Temple and early Rabbinic Judaism; and to equip you with both the understanding and the ability to use a range of historiographical and critical methods in the treatment of such primary sources.

Overview

The Jewish Studies in the Graeco-Roman Period course at the University of Oxford  course consists of instruction in the history and institutions of the Jews and in three specialised areas of Jewish studies which involve close study of particular types of primary texts. 

You will be expected to have a working knowledge of the relevant languages before starting the course, and no time is set aside for basic language instruction. The course is examined entirely at the end of the third term by four three-hour written examinations.

You can expect to be engaged in academic work for at least thirty-five hours a week during the full term and to be expected to carry out a considerable amount of work during the vacations.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Faculty of Oriental Studies and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Faculty of Oriental Studies.

Graduate destinations

Oriental studies graduates have found employment in many diverse fields including business, finance law, civil service, journalism, government and industry.

Many graduates have also undertaken further research into subjects linked with Oriental studies and have pursued successful careers in the academic world, education and in museums.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The course is taught by a mixture of tutorials and classes. 
  • Tutorials will normally consist in one-to-one discussion with a tutor of your written work. The general paper on Jewish history and institutions is taught entirely by a series of weekly tutorials (usually eight) in this manner.
  • The classes provide instruction in the translation and interpretation of most but not necessarily all of the set texts which you are required to study for your specialised papers. General questions about these texts are discussed in tutorials.
