Jewish Studies

Minor Only

The Jewish Studies Minor is available to all students interested in the many dimensions of Jewish life, religion, and culture, from ancient times to the present. It will also interest students who wish to study cultures and civilizations in which thinking about Jews and Judaism played an important role: Christianity, Islam, or modernity, for example. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the Jewish Studies minor offers students access to a broad array of humanities and social sciences disciplines. It therefore serves as a good compliment to any major, as well as providing indispensable intellectual training to anyone interested in Jewish professional life.
