Minor in Judaic Studies

Each student in the Judaic Studies minor is required to work closely with a faculty member in choosing courses offered through the minor. Although each student will have the flexibility to choose any course in the program, the advisors will guide the students so the program does not become a non-disciplinary exercise in Jewish studies, but a crafted effort to show how diverse disciplines within the academic community deal with a single subject. Those students completing the minor will receive recognition on their transcripts.

The Judaic Studies minor is open to any interested student with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and with a 2.5 or higher GPA in the major.


Each student takes at least six courses within the minor, at least three of which must be upper-division courses, selected so that at least one course is in the area of history, one is in literature and one is in philosophy or language.

  • Five courses from the list of Judaic Studies courses - 15 credits
  • JST 495 Independent Study: Interdisciplinary Seminar or other integrating topic - 3 credits


Total: 18 credits
