Brooklyn College is an integral part of the civic, urban and artistic energy of New York and uses the entire city as a living classroom that broadens our students' understanding of the world around them.
What makes Brooklyn College unique is the amazing and variety-filled Judaic options for students on the campus alone. The Judaic Studies Dept. has over 40 classes for students as well as study abroad options in Israel at the top 5 Universities: Bar Ilan University, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Haifa University, Hebrew University and Tel Aviv University. Recently, Brooklyn College has taken on an amazing Israeli scholar, Prof. Anat Maor, who leads courses on Women in Isreal and the Israeli Parliment System. The Judaic Studies Dept. has also teamed up with the YIVO Institute and now hosts the Intensive Summer YIDDISH program on campus.
For more than 80 years, the college has been attracting a wide variety of motivated students â€” many of them immigrants or the children of immigrants who wish to better their lives through a superb education. They come because of the college's renowned faculty of academics, professionals and artists who are among the best in their field. They know they will be learning on a campus considered one of the most beautiful in the country, with well-equipped facilities, studios, smart classrooms, and production and practice rooms â€” all with a highly affordable tuition.
