Experiential Learning

Jewish Quarter in Old City Jerusalem.

The Department of Jewish Thought's Experiential Learning Program provide students with an excellent basis to further their life opportunities outside of the traditional classroom.

Get Active!

Whether by partnering with a faculty member on a research project, enrolling in a directed or independent study course, participating in a credit bearing internship with a Jewish Non-Profit Organization, or making an impact in the Buffalo community, the initiative to go above and beyond will open doors to a multitude of worthwhile experiences. 

Experiential learning is the process through which students are able to elevate their education in Jewish Thought outside of the classroom setting. By participating in experiential learning opportunities, students create community, gain practical skills, and participate in activities that enhance their undergraduate experience.

The Department of Jewish Thought is continually developing new partnerships for summer, winter and semester-long internships with local organizations and corporations. We encourage students to explore their own internship opportunities!
