  • Description:
  • The Joint Doctoral Program in Jewish Studies at the University of California at Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union is an interdisciplinary graduate program that draws upon the rich resources of the two participating institutions as well as the San Francisco Bay Area. Students work with a core group of Jewish Studies faculty at the Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union, and a range of departments at the University of California, including Near Eastern Studies, History and Comparative Literature; they may also study with other faculty in related fields at either institution. Upon completion of the program, both schools award the Ph.D.

  • Admission Information:
  • The graduate application to Berkeley is your first step in applying to the program. Applicants must be accepted by both the University of California, Graduate Division and the Graduate Theological Union. Separate admission committees from each institution make recommendations to the Executive Committee for the Joint Doctoral Program. The Executive Committee then makes recommendations to the GTU and UCB Deans, who make final decisions and notify the applicants. The applicants will receive two separate admissions letters, one from UCB and one from GTU.
