Jewish Literature Program - Jewish Theological Seminary

Yiddish is being taught at the Jewish Theological Seminary in the framework of the Jewish Literature program:

"JTS offers the only program that explores the full range of Jewish literary creativity, from medieval to modern times. Unlike other universities, we do not make students choose from among Hebrew, Yiddish, Judeo-Arabic, or Jewish writing in European languages. Our Jewish Literature Department offers thematic courses that cut across linguistic and temporal boundaries.

Students achieve proficiency in the language(s) of their choice. As a general rule, literature courses in a specific language (Hebrew or Yiddish) are also taught in that language, thereby bringing students even closer to the modes of self-expression being studied. Students elect specialization in Medieval Hebrew Literature, Modern Hebrew Literature, or Modern Yiddish Literature and work toward the MA, DHL, and PhD degrees."
