Taster Program

Quite diverse

But you are still undecided as to whether Jewish Studies is right for you? Then take the opportunity to take a taster course!

Interested individuals or groups are always welcome to attend lectures, language courses or proseminars, get to know lecturers and students and have a look around one of Heidelberg's most modern libraries.

If you are interested, simply send a short email to or schnupperstudium(at) and let us know what you would like to attend. You can find the courses in our course catalog.

Please note that the university is closed on Jewish holidays.
You can find the current dates [HERE].

We are also happy to put together an individual program for an entire taster week for groups of students.
