Judaic Studies, Hebrew Studies, Israel Studies and Religious Studies

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, literature, Yiddish culture, Judaism in America, Holocaust studies, Israel studies, religious studies, Sephardi and Mizrahi Studies, and more. We also offer courses in Hebrew and Yiddish for all levels. They meet Harpur FL requirement.


Thank you for your interest in and support of the Judaic Studies Department. Our endowments are dedicated to support Faculty and students research.
