Judaic Studies provides a broad liberal arts background that cultivates an appreciation of the central role played by Jewish culture in the development of human civilization.  Without the full depth of a major, this interdisciplinary program provides students some substantive understanding of the historical, religious, literary, philosophical, sociological and political experiences of the Jews; and it offers a diverse disciplinary framing of questions central to the Jewish experience with different perspectives and methodologies.


Two tracks are available.  Judaic Studies and Judaic Studies, Language track.
