The Jewish Studies Program at Dartmouth has a long and distinguished tradition. Although faculty positions in the field are relatively new at most American universities, Dartmouth established professorships starting in the 1960s. Some of the outstanding scholars in the field have taught here, including Jacob Neusner, Steven Katz, and Arthur Hertzberg. During the 1980s, programs in the Hebrew language and literature were added, as well as an endowment for an annual visiting professorship.
