Judaic Studies

Explore the tremendous scope and diversity of the Jewish experience.


You find the study of Jewish civilization engrossing, from its ancient Middle East roots to the many places in which it flourishes today. You’d love to conduct research at one of the many museums and cultural institutions in New York, or go farther afield and study in Israel. The Department of Judaic Studies offers a wide variety of experiences, from internships at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, to research under the guidance of one our renowned faculty members, to summers of intensive Yiddish studies at places like Tel Aviv University. Our graduates go into a variety of careers in education, research, social work, policy planning in the private and public sectors, diplomacy and government, and are prepared for graduate studies in any number of fields.
