Summer Internship with JWA in Boston

The Department of Judaic Studies in cooperation with the Jewish Women’s Archive is accepting applications for a paid internship at the JWA in Boston, MA. Students will spend 8 weeks in June and July on site in Boston supporting JWA’s new project Story Aperture (https://jwa.org/stories/story-aperture). 

Read about last year's interns in this great Inside Binghamton article.

"Areas of Study"

The heart of the undergraduate program in Judaic Studies is found in a student's "Area of Study." Judaic Studies students shape their degree around a set of courses they choose. Students may focus their studies in Jewish history, philosophy, Yiddish culture, Judaism in America, Holocaust studies, Israel studies, religious studies, literature, and more.
