Jewish Studies Minor

The Jewish Studies minor is a flexible, interdisciplinary minor for students interested in the study of Jewish history, thought, and culture. Historical coverage ranges from ancient Israel to the contemporary world, and the geographical sweep of the minor is global. Specializations can include, but are not limited to, Modernity and the Jews; Ancient Israel, Bible, and Early Judaism; Holocaust, Anti-Semitism, and Genocide; Jews in America; Jewish Culture and Literature; Israel and Zionism; or Jewish-Christian Relations.

For the Jewish Studies minor, a minimum of 18 credits is required, with at least 6 credits at the 400-level. Up to 9 credits gained through study abroad and/or internships may be substituted for supporting course requirements. No more than 4 credits of Modern Hebrew may count toward the requirements for the minor. All students in the minor must complete Jewish Studies 010 (an introduction to Jewish Civilization).

All required course work must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
