Concentration in Jewish Studies

Explore the history and impact of Jewish culture

As a student in the Jewish studies concentration, you will be introduced to the major historical and religious trends in Jewish civilization since its inception in antiquity. You will have an opportunity to become familiar with a broad range of developments both encountered and fostered by the Jewish people: their contact with other world civilizations, their classical literature, their social and religious institutions, and their interaction with the modern world. In this concentration, Jews and Judaism are studied both in their own internal context and as paradigms for wider trends in history and religion.
