Two Graduate Minor Tracks

Graduate students select to study either Jewish Studies or Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Both graduate minors require 9 credits for MA students and 15 for PhD students. These can include 400 and 500 level courses as well as independent study with faculty members. A list of our courses, as well as a plan of which graduate seminars will be offered in the coming semesters is available.

Opportunities for Graduate Students

As well as the graduate essay prize offered to graduate students throughout the university who write papers related to Jewish Studies, students enrolled in either of the graduate minors can apply for funding from Jewish Studies for research or conference attendance.

TA and RA positions are also available, including serving as a TA on our department’s embedded course to Poland over spring break every other year.

About Our Graduate Students

Graduate students from across the university regularly take our upper level and graduate courses and Jewish Studies faculty members regularly serve on graduate committees in other units. Learn more about some of our current students.
