“When I enrolled in the two-year program, I found myself in an academic environment that is not only friendly and inspiring, but very interdisciplinary as well. Nationalism Studies and its Jewish Studies specialization offered courses from many disciplines that truly opened my eyes to the world and helped me carry out my research. I have also become part of a fantastic network through which I have found colleagues and true friends from all around the globe.”
