Students can major or minor in Jewish Studies through our home department, the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies. Our courses can also count towards degree requirements for other academic programs. We support graduate student research in diverse disciplines through our Graduate Fellowship. Jewish Studies courses are open to students of all backgrounds.
