We’ll help you discover your passion so you can let curiosity move you.

Delve into Jewish history, religion and culture

Our talented, award-winning faculty will challenge and guide you throughout your undergraduate career. You’ll study a wide range of courses dealing with Jewish history, culture, religion, philosophy, the Hebrew language, and many other subjects on your way to a minor in Jewish studies—which you could earn in just six courses.

Discover the world through Jewish studies

In addition to our courses, which cover different historical periods, geographical areas, and diverse peoples and texts, we provide information and guidance on relevant study abroad opportunities in Europe, Israel and even South Africa. Many of our students major in global studies, ethnic studies, history, and classics and religious studies—fields that combine well with the minor in Jewish Studies, given their shared emphasis on politics, beliefs, everyday life and global social issues.
