Graduate Jewish Studies at BU

The Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies partners with the Graduate Division of Religious Studies (GDRS) where students interested in Jewish text and tradition, thought, and society may apply under the appropriate tracks. Applicants to GDRS with a strong interest in Jewish studies may be considered for a Jewish studies fellowship. Other students accepted to any graduate program at BU may also consider affiliating with the Elie Wiesel Center to be considered for any funding opportunities we may provide. We also offer several advanced Jewish studies courses.

More information on the Graduate Division of Religious Studies

If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies in Jewish religious texts and tradition, philosophical/religious thought, or cultures and societies, consider applying to the Graduate Division of Religious Studies (GDRS) at Boston University. We particularly encourage applicants interested in specializing in biblical studies and the history of biblical interpretation, early Judaism (Second Temple Jewish literature, apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, early Jewish magic, Josephus, Dead Sea Scrolls), Jews in medieval Christian society, Jewish and comparative religious thought and philosophy, German Jewish intellectual history, and theological responses to the Holocaust. Students admitted to the PhD programs of the GDRS are now typically eligible for a five-year dissertation fellowship.
