Academic programs

The Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies administers and coordinates a variety of academic programs in Jewish studies, in collaboration with other units and departments of the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as other BU schools and colleges. In addition, you can pursue a minor in Hebrew through the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature.

We support Boston University’s study abroad, especially–but not limited to–the BU Haifa program. This program, is open to all undergraduates and offers BU students a unique opportunity for liberal arts study in a cosmopolitan and multicultural Israeli city. Students accepted to the Haifa program or another university or school for overseas students in Israel may apply for financial assistance from the Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies. For more information, see HERE.

Graduate students working in relevant fields in Jewish studies in different departments within the University can affiliate with the center and compete for financial aid, including research and travel support (contact the Center for details). Our major partner for graduate Jewish studies is the Division of Religious & Theological Studies.
