The Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies' curriculum emphasizes the critical analysis of primary sources, the study of appropriate methodologies and extensive readings in the secondary literature. Applying this at the doctoral level, Revel's rich course offerings and expert faculty guide students toward the realization of their full potential as researchers and academics advancing the frontiers of Jewish scholarship. The PhD is currently offered in the following fields: Bible, medieval Jewish history, modern Jewish history, medieval Jewish philosophy, modern Jewish philosophy, and Talmud.
