Jewish Studies Program

The Jewish Studies program at Hofstra University offers interdisciplinary majors and minors, student internships, guest lectureships, and social events throughout the year. In our annual programming we survey all dimensions of Jewish life past and present. And we particularly focus on studies exploring post-Holocaust life and thought, Judaism and global politics, anti-Semitism and other racisms, Jewish history throughout the world, interculturalities of diverse Judaisms, interfaith studies, Judaism and sexuality, and Jewishness and media (movies, internet, TV).

Jewish Studies works very closely with its students and helps them discover their passion and the multiple career opportunities that this degree makes possible. In recent years JWST students complemented their studies with majors, double-majors, minors and double-minors in a wide variety of areas. These include Radio and TV, Psychology, Pre-Law, Education, Philosophy, Business, Journalism, Middle Eastern Studies, Latin-American and Caribbean Studies, Theater Arts, Global Studies, European Studies, Political Science, Hebrew, Anthropology, Music, Women's Studies and Religion. And we are adding more complementary disciplines every year, so we encourage you to bring a new bridge to our program!
