Programs & Degrees

Jewish Studies is an interdisciplinary program that offers a comprehensive examination of all aspects of Jewish experience. Housed in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington, the Stroum Jewish Studies Program is a highly-regarded international venue for the academic study of Jewish life. A broad range of courses—in history, sociology, political science, law, literary criticism, economics, language, philosophy, religion, and American Studies—addresses the historical, social, cultural, religious, legal, and political life of Jews today and throughout history around the world.

The Jackson School's Comparative Religion Program offers a Master of Arts in International Studies within which, for a "major" in Judaism, a student must complete four to five courses and a third year of Hebrew study.
