UNT's interdisciplinary program in Jewish and Israel studies began in the Fall 2000 semester. It is administered by the Director, Dr. Richard Golden. The program encompasses courses taught in 9 departments throughout the university. The program includes 50 courses on Jews and Judaism taught by 23 faculty. 11 of the program's courses are on the State of Israel. We offer a minor as well as a certificate in Jewish and Israel Studies. Donations to the program support scholarships, curriculum development, faculty development, library acquisitions, speakers, and various activities of the Jewish and Israel Studies program.
