The Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies offers a variety of courses each year, taught both through the program and through affiliate departments.

Descriptions of all Judaic Studies courses are available here: JST Course Descriptions.pdf

Please also browse the current PSU Bulletin for further course descriptions.

We work closely with the Department of World Languages and Literatures to support Hebrew language instruction

We offer a new undergraduate major degree to earn a BA in Judaic Studies, and a minor. The Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies does not at present offer post-graduate degrees, but our faculty often advise MA students in the History Department who focus on Jewish history.

The department is able to offer several scholarships for our students. Please visit our Scholarships page for further information. Advanced undergraduate students and Judaic Studies majors or minors of academic distinction may set up special tutorials, internships, research projects, and by-arrangement courses, with the permission of a qualified instructor.

Visit the Office of the Registrar for general registration information. Seniors may audit any of our courses through the Senior Adult Learning Center.
