The Chicago Center for Jewish Studies serves as a hub to coordinate and publicize all course-offerings in Jewish Studies and offers academic guidance to students interested in the various areas of Jewish Studies. It also serves as a home for the undergraduate major and minor in Jewish Studies, awards an annual essay prize for the best undergraduate paper in Jewish Studies, and (funds permitting) offers research grants and summer stipends to College students. At the graduate level, the Center provides support for students engaged in doctoral research in Jewish Studies in graduate programs in departments, committees, and schools. The Center is also in the course of planning inter-disciplinary graduate seminars in Jewish Studies and is exploring other ways to enhance the disciplinary training of students. Although the Committee on Jewish Studies is no longer accepting new graduate students, the Center is also overseeing the Committee’s continuing students to their degrees.

The Center, like other centers at the University, is not a degree-granting unit; prospective graduate students should therefore apply directly departments and schools. For details concerning graduate admissions, see here [].
