Profile of the programme

Subject Jewish Studies is constituted as interdisciplinary studies of "the science of culture". The aim of the studies is to understand the extensive topics of Jewish Studies in the way they are investigated in broad spectrum by "classic" humanities: history, sociology and political science, theology, philology and art history. The subject Jewish Studies also answers the needs of present research: we expect graduates of the Jewish Studies to become well-educated scholars whom scientific research of history and culture of Jews in the Czech lands demands.

Key learning outcomes

The graduate of the Jewish Studies should understand methodology of scientific thought in the basic disciplines that form the subject Jewish Studies and that are defined as "classic" humanities - history, sociology and theology, philology and art history. The graduate will study basic scientific literature, will have good knowledge of the object, terminology, methodology, history and methodological specializations, directions and schools of his or her major field of study and should be able to define his or her own scientific approach among these opinions. The graduate should be capable of individual creative and scientific work within the frame of his or her chosen specialization, whether in oral (lectures, discussions, critical argumentation) or written form (reviews, articles and papers, scientific work with historical documents, basic research, scientific essay etc.).

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

Graduates can find employment where deep knowledge of Jewish history and culture and ability of creative and scientific thinking is required, i.e. in cultural and public life, in journalism, in publishing houses, cultural and educational institutions, or in scientific and research jobs in archives and museums. Graduate will differ from their competitors in the labor market particularly in their linguistic competence and deep insight into the problems of Jewish and Israeli studies, including the Middle East issues. Graduates will be ready to deepen their specialization through a doctoral program and then continue their research in a scientific institution or university.
