As a part of the University of Colorado’s global initiative, the Program in Jewish Studies is committed to teaching students how to be global citizens. The Program offers a wide variety of study abroad opportunities, including two global seminars (faculty-led, short-term programs) offered in alternating years: Jews and Muslims: The Multi-Ethnic History of Istanbul and Justice, Human Rights, and Democracy in Israel/Palestine. Both programs are currently suspended due to safety concerns, but we are hopeful that they will be re-instated soon.
Additionally, the CU Education Abroad program has a wide variety of semester and year-long international programs in which students can find Jewish Studies learning opportunities. Check out our list of highlighted programs, and contact Education Abroad regarding additional programs. *All courses must be approved by the Program in Jewish Studies advisor and Director of Undergraduate Studies to ensure they will count for Jewish Studies credit at CU!*
Students pursuing Jewish Studies courses abroad may be eligible to receive a Jewish Studies Global Initiatives Scholarship to support their studies.
