The major in Jewish Studies has been revised

The major in Jewish Studies has been revised to include two tracks: a General Jewish Studies track without language requirements, and a Language Enhanced track. Current majors may decide to be grandparented into the old major requirements, or request to switch to these revised major requirements.

The General Jewish Studies track requires a total of 36 credits. The Language Enhanced track requires 39 credits, including six upper-level credits of either Hebrew, Yiddish, or other relevant languages by petition. Learn more
