The UNT Jewish and Israel Studies Program is the only Jewish and Israel Studies program at a public university in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and one of only eight such programs in the U.S. UNT is the largest university in the North Texas region, with more than 37,000 students and more Jewish students than all other Dallas-Fort Worth universities combined. Our program includes 47 courses on Jews and Judaism across seven of UNT's colleges taught by 26 faculty in 9 departments. 13 of the program's courses are on the state of Israel.
The Jewish and Israel Studies Program offers multiple scholarships from seven endowments and programs. We offer a minor and a certificate in Jewish and Israel Studies. We also house a library of more than 2,000 books and 300 films.
The Texas Jewish Post published an article the Jewish and Israel Studies' name change titled “A Pivotal Move.”
