Older Adult Auditor Program
New York state law permits residents 60 years or older to audit credit-bearing classes at state-affiliated campuses free of charge. Auditors participate in class activities at the discretion of the instructor and on a space-available basis. Participants identify courses of interest and contact the instructor to determine openings for older audit auditor participation.
"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.
Students may focus their studies in Jewish history, philosophy, theology, Yiddish culture, Holocaust studies, Israel studies, religious studies, literature - shape your own program of study.
Fall 2016 Courses
Seats are available in some Fall courses, including Yiddish 1, Jewish Non Profits, and Israeli Literature, Society, and Culture.
Take a look at our course listings. New courses in Israel literature, philosophy of religion, and American Judaism highlight our Fall offerings.
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.
