The Hebrew Studies program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is one of two tracks in the Jewish Studies major and minor; Jewish Cultural Studies is the second track.


What can I do with a degree in Jewish Studies?

The major and minor in Jewish Studies appeal to students with an interest in Judaism and religion, but also train students in the kind of critical thinking and writing skills appreciated by future employers. Our students have gone on to careers as museum administrators, teachers, rabbis, clergy members, doctors, non-profit administrators, and social workers. A degree in Jewish Studies lets future employers know that you are committed to the cultural literacy so vital for our multicultural world.

Why Hebrew Studies?

The Hebrew Studies program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee can be completed fully-online, face-to-face, or with a combination of course formats to suit your schedule. Hebrew Studies includes not only Hebrew language classes but also courses on the Hebrew scriptures, Judaism, and Jewish life. Taking courses in Hebrew Studies will not only give you greater understanding into the past, but will allow you to engage with the vibrancy of Jewish life and culture today.

Our courses can enhance your learning in a wide range of subjects and professions – including International Relations, Middle Eastern and North African Studies, Religious Studies, Business, Political Science, Journalism, and many more. You might be interested in a single course about Judaism, or you might be interested in the deeper study offered by a minor or a major.

Courses in Modern Hebrew provide a strong foundation for studying Biblical Hebrew and will enable you to visit to Israel, a dynamic, multicultural society in the heart of the Middle East.
