This Schusterman Professorship complements the vibrant and expanding interdisciplinary program in Judaic and Israel Studies which comprises eight core and fourteen associated faculty members and includes two other endowed positions, and a visiting Israel Studies professorship. The Center is housed within the Department of History, and the Professor of Jewish Religious & Intellectual History would be a member of that department. Between 650 and 750 students are enrolled annually in Judaic & Israel Studies classes, the majority in History, but also in courses offered by Center affiliated faculty in Modern Languages, Literatures, & Linguistics, Anthropology, English, and International and Area Studies. In addition to undergraduate minors in Judaic and Israel Studies and Hebrew, masters and doctoral degrees with a concentration in Jewish History and Israel Studies are offered through the Department of History. The Center also provides undergraduate and graduate scholarships for study in Israel.
