Judaic Studies

Embark on a rigorous study of everything Judaica, from Israel's present international position to the Book of Job.

Jewish civilization was born in the ancient Middle East and has flourished in a variety of forms and places for more than 3,000 years. But if you are thinking about graduate work in Judaic studies, you probably already know that. Take your knowledge to the next level by sharpening your understanding of the Bible, the Talmud and Midrash, the Holocaust and modern Jewish thought. Delve into the lives and culture of Jews in of Central and Western Europe, the United States, Israel and the Middle East. Our commitment to rigorous, critical and serious teaching and research about Judaica is demonstrated by our course offerings and programs that reflect the chronological scope and geographic diversity of the Jewish experience.
