The program provides opportunities for archaeological fieldwork in Israel either at the University sponsored project at Tel Yin'am in the Lower Galilee, or at another approved excavation sponsored by Universities in Israel. The program also provides the opportunity for on-site study of historical remains of Jewish communities in Europe and the Middle East.
Several study abroad programs at the University of Texas complement the Jewish Studies Major. Recommended programs include the Normandy Scholars Program, Tracking Cultures, and Mediterranean Crossroads. Students would also benefit from study at universities in Israel and other countries.
Students are eligible to apply for financial support for Study Abroad through the UT Study Abroad Office.
