B.A. studies cover the history of Jews from ancient times until the 20th century, Jewish religion, philosophy and literature, Jewish material culture and Jewish folklore. Owing to language courses delivered from the elementary to intermediate levels, students have the opportunity to study Yiddish and Hebrew languages.

Knowledge and skills gained during these studies prepare students for professional work in various institutions focusing on Jewish history, culture and heritage. These include, most importantly, museums, archives, libraries, institutions of education and culture, publishing houses, tourist agencies, public administration bodies, foundations and associations. Language skills open career opportunities for graduates in business and diplomacy.
