Judaic Studies

Students completing a Judaic Studies major will have a versatile liberal arts degree that prepares them well for a variety of paths, among them professional, graduate, and Jewish communal service.

Welcome New Faculty

Professor Shay Rabineau, the first Assistant Professor of Israel Studies at Binghamton University, will be joining our faculty this year. He will be teaching History of Modern Israel, and Hiking the Holy Land in the Fall.

"Areas of Study"

The heart of the undergraduate program in Judaic Studies is found in a student's "Area of Study." This is a set of courses which cluster together to form an area of study of the student's choice.

Learn more about the programs we offer here.

Spring 2016 Courses

We offer courses in Jewish history, Israel Studies, Yiddish and Hebrew language, and philosophy of religion, and more. Take a look at our course listings. New courses in Israel Studies and a course on Sex and Judaism highlight our Spring offerings.

Graduate Program

Binghamton University's Master of Public Administration (MPA) program is pleased to announce that we have expanded our programming and are now offering a combined (fast-track) BA-MPA program in Judaic Studies

An MPA degree is a professional degree for those interested in public service careers in management.  It is ideal for individuals who are committed to public service, would like to be a leader in a nonprofit or public organization, and want to make a positive difference in the world.
