Department Chair: David Mednicoff

A dynamic program in Judaic & Near Eastern Studies affords an exceptional and unusual educational opportunity for students. The University of Massachusetts Amherst is the only public institution of higher learning in New England – and one of the few nationwide – with a program wholly dedicated to cultivating an appreciation of the historic role played by the peoples of the Middle East and their cultures in the development of human civilization.
