"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.
BU offers courses in Hebrew and Yiddish for all levels. For more information about courses and placement, contact Professor Shoer (Hebrew) or Professor Glasman (Yiddish).
We now offer a BA in Hebrew Studies. Please contact Professor Shoer or Professor Friedman for details.
