Courses in Yiddish
Yiddish is one of Sweden's official national minority languages and Lund University is the only university in Scandinavia that offers teaching and conducts research about Yiddish language, literature and culture.
A new generation of Yiddish-speaking researchers and teachers is helping to revitalize the language in the 21st century. The teaching consists partly of language studies and partly of cultural courses that examine the rich Yiddish literature and Ashkenazi-Jewish history and culture.
The courses are taught as distance learning via Zoom and international admissions are welcome. But please note that you will have to pay if your not a citizen of a EU country.
Late applications open on July 15.
