The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies at The University of Arizona first began as the Judaic Studies Program in 1975. Today, the Center has a diverse selection of courses in Jewish studies and a Hebrew language program that offers both Modern and Biblical Hebrew. Our expertise in Judaic languages, history, religion, and culture provide a deep understanding of Jews and Judaism on their own terms through time and across cultures. The Center seeks to explore people in all their marvelous diversity, as individuals, within their own communities and within their larger societies. Our goal is to enrich the life of our community by offering scholarship and professional advising on one of the oldest and most influential civilizations in human history.
Graduate Certificate students must possess a baccalaureate degree and must meet all University of Arizona Graduate College requirements.

Up to six (6) previously earned credits may be transferred from UA graduate courses taken under Non-Degree Status or from graduate courses taken at another accredited university or college. These credits may not have been earned more than two years prior to admission into the Graduate Certificate Program. The Graduate Program Director must approve all transfer courses, once they have been approved by UA Admissions and/or the Graduate College.
