The Kurt and Ursula Schubert Center for Jewish Studies at the Faculty of Arts at Palacký University in Olomouc constitutes institution, which in 2006 beginning the accreditation for a follow-up Master's program - Jewish Studies: History and Culture of the Jews – as a first in the Czech Republic filled a gap in the field of scientific discussion about the research of Jewish topics which has a strong and rich tradition in Bohemia and Moravia. In 2013 also BA studies Jewish and Israeli Studies were accredited.

The major has one unique characteristic – narrower focus on regional topics – Jews in Moravia. It forms CJS a regional research and educational center and at the same time a place stimulating interest in Israel which contributes to formation of unbiased attitudes towards the Near East problematics.

Both programs offer interdisciplinary educational model of Jewish Studies. Jewish Studies: History and Culture of the Jews (graduate programme) or Jewish and Israeli Studies (undergraduate programme) represent a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the history, cultural benefits, current development and functioning of the Jewish society not only in our country but also on a global scale and offers versatile academic education, including the most important aspects of Jewish culture, religion, history, sociology, literature and arts. The model system of instruction allows students great flexibility in choosing their subjects and their focus in the field they choose.
