The Minor in Judaic Studies
Compatible with a broad range of majors, the minor in Judaic Studies seeks to interpret the long history of the Jewish people in both its internal development and its relationships with other cultures.
This dual focus opens important career possibilities. The minor can lead to graduate programs in Judaic studies and careers in Jewish education and community organizations. In its interdisciplinary and multicultural aspect, the program offers models for the new millennium's movement towards a world community and thus supports majors and careers in such areas as art, geography, history, literature, music, politics, religion, and social work.
The minor consists of 18 credits in Judaic studies. Each student must take JST 101-- Jewish Life and Civilization -- and then develop an individual plan of study in consultation with one of the directors and an appropriate program adviser.
