The Jewish Studies concentration is an 18-semester-hour program designed for an interdisciplinary study of Jews and Judaism. The program is constructed to provide students and the wider community with a forum that encourages dialogue across different academic disciplines. The central values of the concentration are dedicated to the support of academic research, civic and community outreach, coordination with Jewish organizations, public lecture series, and symposia that both educate and challenge all members of our community of learners to be informed, responsible and capable global citizens.
To satisfy the core requirements for the concentration, students will take approved courses, as detailed below. Students meeting the requirements for the Jewish Studies concentration will have a notation added to their transcript. In order to receive this notation, students must complete a Jewish Studies Concentration Completion Form and meet with the Jewish Studies coordinator.
