UCL Hebrew & Jewish Studies


UCL Hebrew & Jewish Studies

Pioneering Jewish Studies. Since 1826.

The UCL Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies is a world-leading centre in the heart of London, noted for its innovative research and teaching. Drawing on UCL’s tradition of secularism and open-mindedness, we integrate all aspects of Jewish Studies, from antiquity to modernity, through the prism of history, literature, and languages.

We are the only university department in the UK dedicated to the field of Hebrew and Jewish Studies and its comprehensive, integrated study.  We train future scholars and educate the wider community.

50th Anniversary Celebration

Fifty years ago, UCL elevated its traditional Hebrew studies, established in 1826, to an independent Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, as we all know it today.
