"Areas of Study"
The heart of the undergraduate program in Judaic Studies is found in a student's "Area of Study." Judaic Studies students shape their degree around a set of courses they choose. Students may focus their studies in Jewish history, philosophy, Yiddish culture, Judaism in America, Holocaust studies, Israel studies, religious studies, literature, and more.
