Jewish Studies

The purpose of the Jewish studies minor is to enable and enrich student knowledge of Jewish spirituality, literature, history and cultural diversity. The interdisciplinary curriculum provides a range of courses for student explorations of Judaism and Jewish experience and thus fosters among students an understanding of Jewish studies as the analysis of a manifold religious civilization. The minor is open to those students in a wide variety of academic majors interested in broadening their perspectives about religion and cultural diversity.

The Jewish studies minor consists of 22 semester hours, including JS:113 Introduction to Judaism, JS:255 Jewish Literature, JS:338 The Holocaust, eight semester hours selected from the other available Jewish studies courses listed below, and two semester hours of independent study approved by the coordinator.
