The Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies' PhD program is an academically rigorous collaborative program that trains doctoral students to become well-rounded scholars with a strong foundation in Jewish Studies. Students learn the value of interdisciplinary scholarship, thrive with the mentorship of ATCJS' faculty members, benefit from the Centre's rich network of students and scholars at UofT and beyond, and have access to significant funding for research. Students also enjoy meeting many fellow scholars who approach topics in Jewish Studies with various perspectives and backgrounds.
One of the highlights of ATCJS' PhD program is the annual Schwartz-Reisman Graduate Conference in April, where students share their brilliant research projects with the community. The Graduate Student Conference always receives an enthusiastic response, with the past conference in April 2020 having more than 100 people in attendance for the event.
