Yiddish Studies

Anna Shternshis is the Al and Malka Green Professor of Yiddish and Diaspora Studies

The Yiddish Studies program offers two full years of Yiddish language instruction and a number of undergraduate courses on Yiddish culture, literature and society, taught both through the German Department and Collaborating units, including Centre for Jewish Studies, History, and Centre for Diaspora Studies. All non-language courses are taught in English translation. Yiddish language courses have to be taken in sequence. All Yiddish language and culture courses are cross-listed with the Jewish Studies program and Diaspora Studies program, and can be used towards majors and minors in those fields, in addition to those in German.
