Jewish Studies at Rice main image title

Welcome to Jewish Studies

In January of 2009, Rice launched the Program in Jewish Studies.  The program has over ten affiliated faculty members from the humanities and social sciences, who are offering courses on all levels, ranging from introductory courses for students with no or little background to advanced seminars.  We also offer an interdisciplinary minor in Jewish Studies.

The program regularly organizes lectures and conferences on a broad array of topics related to Jewish Studies.  Lectures are given both on and off the Rice campus and are open to all students, faculty and the community.  We are also engaged with several local institutions in Houston.

Thank you for your interest in our new Program in Jewish Studies, and please be in touch.

Matthias Henze,
Director of Program in Jewish Studies
