Florida International University, Judaic Studies Program
Florida International University 11200 SW 8 St., DM368 Miami, Florida 33199
The Judaic Studies Program at Florida International University educates university students and faculty and the general South Florida community about Jewish history, culture, religion, literature, political science and international relations. Judaic Studies offers academically rigorous, multidisciplinary courses at both the Biscayne Bay and University Park campuses in a wide range of departments. A Certificate in Judaic Studies is available to those who complete an 18-credit interdisciplinary course program. The Certificate can complement a student's major or be a stand-alone program for non-matriculated students pursuing personal enrichment or professional credentialization. Community outreach events sponsored by the JSP are open to the public and the FIU community and include an annual lecture series featuring leading scholars in Judaic studies as well as world-renowned experts speaking on a variety of topics, such as Latin American Jewry and Holocaust Studies. Events occur on and off campus at various affiliated organizations, including the Alper Jewish Community Center, the Holocaust Memorial-Miami Beach, the Jewish Museum of Florida and other South Florida venues.
