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. In its interdisciplinary and multicultural aspect, the program offers models for the new millennium’s movement toward world community and thus supports majors and careers in areas such as art, geography, history, literature, music, politics, religion, and social work. The minor can also lead to careers in Jewish education and community organization, and prepares students for graduate work in Judaic studies. Questions should be addressed to the coordinator of Judaic Studies.

15 additional credits, chosen in consultation with the Judaic Studies Coordinator and an appropriate academic adviser.  Up to six credits of Hebrew language study at the college level (HBR) may count toward the completion of the minor.
