The Borns Jewish Studies Program at Indiana University is an interdepartmental program. Our faculty are housed in various departments - including Comparative Literature, English, Germanic Studies, History, Musicology, Near Eastern Languages & Cultures, Political Science, and Religious Studies – where students pursue master’s or doctoral degrees. The Borns JSP offers a Masters of Arts degree in Jewish Studies. Students enrolled in an IUB doctoral program may also pursue a doctoral minor in Jewish Studies.

“The strength of the graduate program lies in the tight-knit, supportive, and focused academic community nurtured by accessible professors and a thriving Jewish Studies Graduate Student Association.” Matthew Brittingham, Jewish Studies M.A., 2014
