Info for Prospective Students

Undergraduates interested in pursuing a certificate in Jewish Studies have the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors from departments throughout the Dietrich School, both inside and beyond the classroom. Our students take advantage of resume-building internships in the Pittsburgh Jewish community; apply for generous funding for independent research, Study Abroad, and travel; and, work one-on-one with advisors to develop individualized academic plans that help put them on the path to success.

Recent stand out student experiences include:

  • Students in Professor Rachel Kranson's "Holocaust History and Memory" course visited the American Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh
  • Students in Professor Amy Colin's “Vienna 1900” class visited Austria at the end of the 2018 spring term in a trip that was co-sponsored by the Department of German, the University Honors College, the Study Abroad Office, and the Jewish Studies program
