Jewish Studies, Minor
Matthias Lehmann, Director

The minor in Jewish Studies is an interdisciplinary program that introduces students to the many facets of Jewish cultures through the study of the history, philosophy, art, literature, languages, and social and political institutions of Jews from ancient to modern times. The minor provides students with grounding in areas of fundamental importance to the Humanities and Social Sciences, supporting and enriching the students’ majors. The minor may be taken in tandem with any major and prepares students for graduate programs in Jewish Studies. The interdisciplinary approach of Jewish Studies exposes students to a wide range of disciplines and, like other established liberal arts fields, provides a foundation for pursuing a range of careers.
