About Us

The Jewish Studies Program at Duke University originated in the 1940s and was formally established in 1972. Today, the Center for Jewish Studies is an inter-departmental program that sponsors a wide variety of cultural events, offers educational programs, and fosters academic research and scholarly exchange of ideas.

We offer a wide range of interdisciplinary courses, offer an undergraduate certificate program, partner with other departments and programs across Duke, and work closely with organizations and groups to share resources, provide learning opportunities and promote Jewish culture.
