About

The Jewish Studies BA program, offered by the University at Buffalo, is devoted to critically examining some of the central questions of human identity through the resources of the Jewish tradition.

Overview

By putting Greek philosophy, Roman law and Biblical ethics in conversation with one another, we will address the following questions: Where does ethics come from? What is God? What does a just society look like? What makes us human? Can science and religion be reconciled? What is the impact of the Holocaust? What is American Jewish identity? At the University at Buffalo we offer a bachelor degree in Jewish Studies.

Students learn to combine the latest theoretical approaches with the millennia-long tradition of Jewish Thought in order to address challenges of modern society. Our department fosters a strong, nurturing sense of community where faculty members mentor students and encourage them to develop their course of study according to their individual interests. By providing a comprehensive humanities education, the Jewish Studies BA prepares the student for a wide range of graduate programs and professional careers.
