Two New Major Concentrations in Jewish Studies

Published: April 20, 2017

Students participating in Liora Halperin's classroomThe Program in Jewish Studies is pleased to announce an exciting change to the structure of the Major in Jewish Studies!

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Jewish Studies may now choose from one of the following two major concentrations:

  • Culture Intensive Concentration, in which students will pursue an in-depth study of Jewish culture.
  • Foreign Language Intensive Concentration, in which students will obtain advanced language skills in addition to considerable knowledge of Jewish culture.

These major concentrations will enable students to pursue the best Jewish Studies degree for them! 

The Major in Jewish Studies is designed to help students develop the professional skills they need to become engaged global citizens and to obtain a job after graduation or pursue graduate studies. By studying the world through the lens of Jewish culture, history, literature, society, and thought from a broad, interdisciplinary perspective, our students gain fundamental critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills.

All students of all backgrounds, Jewish and non-Jewish, may pursue a Major or Minor in Jewish Studies.
