The Department of Jewish Thought does not offer a graduate degree track at this time. However, we are very excited about the forthcoming MA in Jewish Thought degree, which is currently under development. If you are a current or prospective student interested in pursuing Jewish scholarship at the graduate level, please contact Sergey Dolgopolski, chair of the department, for further information.
The Department of Jewish Thought faculty frequently serve as committee members in doctoral dissertations for the Departments of Art, Comparative Literature, English or Philosophy. If you are a current doctoral student interested in asking one of our faculty members to serve on your graduate committee, please contact them directly. We look forward to working with you!
A stipend of up to $5,000 will be awarded annually to support a UB doctoral student working in an academic area that touches upon Jewish culture or Judaism. This fellowship is made possible through a generous donation by Sharon Bob Young in honor of her parents, Ruth and Isadore Bob.
To apply, students should submit the following materials (either hard copies or digital attachments) to:
Professor Alex Green
Director of Undergraduate Studies
712 Clemens Hall
University at Buffalo
Buffalo, NY 14260
Deadline: Last business day of April every year the fellowship is offered.
