Tel Aviv University International MA in Archaeology & History of the Land of the Bible

Program Description

The International MA Program in Archaeology and History of the Land of the Bible is a unique program of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures, in collaboration with the International School at Tel Aviv University. The program is the only one of its kind in Israel and in the world, allowing students from a variety of countries across the globe to study the Archaeology and History of the Land of the Bible – IN the Land of the Bible.
 
The program offers a unique window into the country’s perplexing and complex past, while introducing students to issues of theory and methodology. Over the course of the program students will explore the periods between the mid-second millennium BCE through the Muslim conquest in the seventh century CE. This will be done through the study of archaeological finds, biblical text and Ancient Near Eastern texts that illuminate the economic and social structures, diplomatic and political relations and religious practices of the inhabitants of ancient Israel, as well as tours of archaeological sites.
 
Throughout the third semester students will gain fieldwork experience in some of the most exciting excavations conducted in Israel by TAU scholars, in a four to six weeks excavation program. The International program in Archaeology and History of the Land of the Bible can be taken as a one year MA program (without thesis), as a two year MA program (with thesis), or as a one year credited course program towards a PhD
