ANNOUNCING: A 1-Year MA in Talmud

The Talmud Department at Bar Ilan University, the best of it's type in the world, is please to announce the launching of a One Year MA Program, opening in October 2011. This is an unparalleled opportunity to study wit leading lights in the fields of Talmud, Dead Sea Scrolls, History of Halakha, Mishpat Ivri, Midrash, and Rabbinic Theology. I am proud to be part of the initiative and will offer a course entitled: Halakhah, Kabbalah and Philosophy (with some added suprises).

If you're Israeli, or planning on being in Israel on a sabbatical, this is a wonderful opportunity.

This seems to me to be a major step back for Bar Ilan academically. Now all of the students who come with a B.Ed. from various colleges will spend one day a week at Bar Ilan, and within a year have their MA. Do you really think that this will provide them with proper training? The only advantage that I can think of is that it will improve your enrollment numbers.

Relevent to the first comment, is this influenced at all by the one year MA that I heard was to open at TAU?
