Jewish Studies

Program Description

The Jewish Studies program offers undergraduates an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Jews, their history, religion, language, thought, culture, literature, and music, so as to comprehend the Jewish experience in antiquity, the middle ages, and the present. The program attempts, through the study of one group, to understand the inner dynamics of all human life. It employs four full time and four adjunct faculty members.

Also, a new emphasis is on American Jewish History and Culture.
