JDST 400: Special Study or Project provides students the opportunity to extend and apply their knowledge in a research, internship, or supervised study experience. The greater Baltimore-Washington area offers a wide variety of settings and opportunities for research and internships including the Jewish Museum of Maryland, the Baltimore Hebrew University, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the B'nai B'rith Kluztnick Museum in Washington, D.C., along with a variety of community research, social service and advocacy agencies.Opportunities for study abroad are available. In some cases students have spent their freshman year studying in Israel while maintaining enrollment at UMBC. In other cases, students have gone abroad for one or two semesters in their junior or senior year. Study abroad projects can also be arranged for the winter and summer sessions. To ensure the maximum transfer of overseas course credit to UMBC, and to the Judaic Studies program, prior planning with a Judaic Studies academic advisor is urged.
