Program Overview

Jewish Studies provides undergraduate students with a comprehensive view of Jewish thought, history, and life. Judaism has flourished in a great variety of cultures in the past and in the present. Our courses therefore examine it as a living and dynamic religion in relation to others in the ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary worlds. Our students will develop important interdisciplinary skills as they learn to apply different methods and models for understanding religion, history, and culture, useful in both academic and professional settings.
