Jewish Studies

For more than 3,000 years, Judaism has shaped history and the world. Explore this ancient culture through Jewish Studies at Oakton and gain a unique perspective on art, history, languages, literature, and more!

Jewish Studies at Oakton offers an 18-credit-hour interdisciplinary academic concentration, as well as public lectures, symposia, and events that educate and challenge all members of our community of learners to be informed, responsible and capable global citizens.

For more information, contact Wendy Maier Sarti, professor of history, and Jewish Studies coordinator, at jewishstudies@oakton.edu or 847.635.1458.

Special programs are made possible thanks to a grant from the Oakton Educational Foundation.
