Spring Courses

We are offering a wide range of courses this Spring,  including literature, Hebrew, Yiddish, history, Israel studies, and Holocaust studies.

"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.
