Gratz College's M.A. in Antisemitism Studies, a first-of-its-kind interdisciplinary graduate program in the U.S., prepares students for successful careers in Jewish community organizations, education, advocacy, government relations, and public policy, among others. With antisemitism on the rise and following the horrific events of 10/7, it is more important than ever that interested individuals develop a deep knowledge of historical and contemporary antisemitism, and a functional skillset that prepares them to combat Jew-hatred and root out prejudice more broadly.
Following the model of Gratz's world-leading graduate program in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, the M.A. in Antisemitism Studies will operate as a 36-credit online degree. Students will take either 11 courses and complete a final project (3 credits) or 10 courses and a thesis (6 credits). The degree will consist of a core course sequence to build foundational knowledge of antisemitism and racism and concentration-based electives, allowing students to develop expert knowledge in subjects curated to their professional aspirations and demands. Students seeking a Graduate Certificate in Antisemitism Studies will take four courses (12 credits) of their choosing from available Antisemitism Studies course offerings.
