The Jewish Studies program is an academic program affiliated with the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies. The program seeks to acquaint students with the breadth of Jewish culture, to introduce them to life and culture in the modern state of Israel, and, because Hebrew has been the primary vehicle of Jewish expression in Israel and in the diaspora, to help them attain a working knowledge of the Hebrew language. Through the minor in Jewish studies, the program offers students an opportunity to take courses in the following areas of Jewish studies: history, literature and thought, Israeli society and politics, and Hebrew. The interdisciplinary nature of Jewish studies allows students to take courses in different departments, including History, Religious Studies, English, and Government.
