About

University of Connecticut Judaic Studies graduate program provides a unique opportunity for students with specialized interests in Jewish literature, culture, and history to pursue their research in the context of other relevant literatures, cultures, and languages, all of which are integrated within UConn's Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages (LCL).

Overview

The Degree

  • The core faculty, which includes Center Director Jeffrey Shoulson, Academic Director and HEJS Section Chair Stuart S. Miller, Professor Susan Einbinder, and UConn Stamford Center for Judaic Studies and Middle Eastern Studies Director Nehama Aschkenasy, provides strength in Classical, Medieval, and Early Modern Judaic Studies, with a special focus on Jewish-Christian-Muslim relations, and is strengthened by the larger Hebrew and Judaic Studies (HEJS) faculty and affiliated colleagues from other departments.
  • The Center also offers support for graduate studies in the form of assistantships (teaching and research). Students enrolled in the MA in Judaic Studies are eligible for these assistantships, which cover tuition and fees and include a stipend for living expenses. Students who apply for admission to the MA program will automatically be considered for these assistantships.
  • University of Connecticut students who have an interest in expanding their knowledge of Judaic Studies for professional or personal reasons are encouraged to apply.
