The Masters degree is designed for students to develop advanced skills in carrying out independent and sustained research in Jewish Studies. The thesis should demonstrate a critical application of specialist knowledge and make an independent contribution to exsisting scholarship in the area of research. Candidates may advance to the Doctor of Philosophy degree after successful completion of the Masters or may apply to convert to the PhD at an earlier stage. An Honours grade of at least 70% (H2B) must be attained to qualify for the award of the Masters degree. It is expected that a graduate of the University of Melbourne will be able to engage in academic discourse in English. Therefore a research Masters thesis will normally be written in English. At the same time the Faculty seeks to encourage the acquisition of appropriate levels of linguistic and cultural competencies necessary for research of international distinction. Consequently, if a candidate wishes to write a thesis in another language, an application can be made to the Faculty"s Research and Graduate Studies Commitee at an early stage in the candidature. The commitee will consider such an application if the source material and readership are primarily in that language or the thesis is concerned with the study of language. Where permission is granted, a summary of the thesis (approximately 2,500 words) in English should be bound in the thesis.
