New Summer Fellowship
Judaic Studies – Jewish Women’s Archive Summer Internship
This Summer, two Judaic Studies students are working as paid interns at the Jewish
Women's Archive in Boston. Alexandra and Georgia are collecting oral histories of
the Soviet Jewry movement. They will present their research in Boston at the end of
the Summer, and in Binghamton during our Spring Research Days.
"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.
