Welcome to the University of Florida


The Center for Jewish Studies provides an interdepartmental curriculum which serves as a basis for understanding the broad spectrum of Jewish culture and civilization.

Through coursework in the departments of religion, English, African and Asian Languages and Literatures, history, and philosophy, students may acquaint themselves with and specialize in areas within Jewish Studies such as biblical studies, Jewish history, early Judaism and Christianity, Rabbinic texts, Jewish mysticism, and modern Hebrew literature.

The program may serve as preparation for graduate work in Jewish Studies, as background for a career in Jewish education of community service, or as an area of special interest which will enrich one's undergraduate experience.
