Hebrew & Jewish Studies



Library shelves

UCL Hebrew & Jewish Studies is the only academic department in the UK dedicated to the study of every aspect and phase of the Jewish historical experience. This contrasts with the usual setting of Jewish Studies components within broad subject-areas and disciplinary frameworks.

The integrity of Jewish Studies as a field of enquiry is implicit in our constitution as a department, and underpins the disciplinary diversity that marks our research-activity.

Our research-interests stretch over wide chronological and geographical spans, entail a range of both ancient and modern languages, and are pursued from a variety of methodological approaches.
