About Us

The Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies offers interdisciplinary programs in Jewish studies on the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate students from all BU colleges can pursue a minor in Jewish studies or take our courses as electives. Graduate students can affiliate with the Center. With more than thirty affiliated faculty from across the University, we offer courses in a wide range of disciplines.

Named for Elie Wiesel, the 1986 Nobel Laureate for Peace and a member of the BU faculty for nearly forty years, we strive to maintain his legacy of excellent teaching and scholarship. We are particularly committed to the study of the humanities in a Jewish key, a mission we bring to the greater Boston area through our public lectures and programs.
