The minor in Judaic Studies provides the opportunity for in-depth study of Jewish history, literature, politics, culture, religion, sociology and gender studies using approaches developed through multidisciplinary approaches. Courses offered cover a broad time span — the ancient Near East to contemporary America — and they challenge and stimulate students to examine and learn about Jewish culture as a topic of scientific interest.
For the minor, 20 units in Judaic Studies and Religion are required. The following courses are required: REL 301 and JS 180 . Three additional courses may be chosen from among JS 321 , JS 340 , JS 361 , JS 375 , JS 382 , JS 383 , JS 415 and REL 312 . Successful completion of five 4-unit courses or the equivalent in Jewish American Studies is required to qualify for the minor.
