Indiana University has much to offer to graduate students who wish to specialize in modern Jewish history. Within the History Department, particular strengths include East European and Russian Jewish history, the history of the Holocaust and twentieth-century Germany, Sephardi history in Spain and the Sephardi diaspora, the history of Palestine and Jerusalem, and the European eighteenth-century. Graduate students can major in Jewish history for their master’s and doctoral degrees.
Indiana University is also home to one of the largest Jewish Studies programs in the country with affiliated faculty in seven different departments. Hebrew and Yiddish language are offered through the Jewish Studies Program, in addition to the wide range of languages that are being taught in other units on campus. Being able to specialize in modern Jewish history in the History Department, graduate students can thus expect to be part of a truly interdisciplinary endeavor.
Numerous other resources are available in other units on campus as well, for example the Russian and East European Institute. Intensive reading-comprehension courses, Reading Yiddish for Holocaust Research, are offered in conjunction with the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies (CAHS) of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in the summer.
