For students seeking to specialize in Judaism, Penn's Religious Studies department has particular strength in the study of Jewish antiquity from the biblical age through late antiquity. The departmental focus is on helping to develop scholars able to illuminate biblical and ancient Jewish texts and to produce new research in the study of Judaism in a formative period of its history.
