Middle Eastern Studies: Hebraica/Judaica

OTHER SUBJECT RESPONSIBILITIES: Yiddish Literature, See also Middle Eastern Studies
PHONE: 495-4399

The resources supporting Jewish, Hebrew, and Yiddish studies at The University of Texas at Austin cover a variety of disciplines including history, art, music, linguistics and literature, sociology, and government. The Jewish Studies Program offers an undergraduate interdisciplinary program that incorporates all aspects of the Jewish tradition and emphasizes the diasporic accomplishments of the entire Jewish collective and its relations with other peoples in all periods and civilizations. It also provides courses for undergraduates who wish to major or minor in the discipline, or for those who desire an introduction to Jewish civilization; and it supports the development of the Judaica collection in the University of Texas Libraries. In addition to the Jewish Studies Program, the Hebrew Studies Program at UT-Austin offers the most comprehensive course of study in that area available anywhere in the Southwest. The program prepares students for B.A. and M.A. degrees. The Ph.D. is offered in Middle Eastern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with a specialization in Hebrew. These programs and related study and research within a number of disciplines are supported by published and archival material in almost every unit of the University of Texas Libraries.
