Fields of specialization for the MA degree and diploma studies

The two-year MA program aims to enhance the student’s knowledge in his chosen field, and to teach students scientific research methods.

Most MA programs offer both a 28-hour research track with a thesis requirement and a 32-hour theoretical (final exam) track. Students select their preferred track on admission. To register, candidates must submit the relevant documents regarding their education, together with form 22b entitled Special Form for MA Candidates at the Faculty of the Humanities  to the Registration and Admissions Center.
