Concentration

Oakton's 18-credit-hour Jewish Studies concentration provides an interdisciplinary study of Jews and Judaism -- requirements are listed below. Students meeting these requirements will have a notation added to their transcripts. In order to receive this notation, students must complete a Jewish Studies Concentration Completion Form and meet with the Jewish Studies coordinator.

Jewish Studies Concentration Requirements

  • HIS 136 – Introduction to Jewish Studies, 3 credit hours
  • HIS 228 – History of the Holocaust, 3 credit hours
  • Twelve credits (usually four additional courses) designated as Jewish Studies courses or sections. Choices vary by semester, and can include art, history, languages, literature, and more.
