Jewish Studies

Jewish Studies promotes an understanding of all aspects of Jewish life, culture, language, literature, religion, and history. As a multidisciplinary program, it is composed of faculty members from the departments of anthropology, English, history, philosophy, political science, and sociology, and school of languages and culture. There is considerable flexibility in the Jewish Studies major and minor to help students meet their interests and goals. Extracurricular activities complement the academic course of study.

All liberal arts majors prepare students with the skills identified as contributing to managerial success:  communicating and listening well, possessing insights into others, creative/critical thinking, problem solving, and the ability to make connections across complex ideas.
