The certificate program in Judaic studies is designed to provide students with an overview of Jewish history, culture, and religion. The program serves as an excellent preparation for advanced study in many fields, including religion, philosophy, and history. The program may be of special interest to students who plan a period of study abroad in Eastern Europe or the Middle East.
Students must complete 18 hours of approved course work, including at least 12 hours at the 3000-level or above. Students must take at least one course from each of the two core course areas. Core courses may substitute for electives. In addition to the courses listed below, topical courses eligible for credit towards the certificate may be offered periodically, and study abroad courses may be eligible for credit towards the certificate as approved by the program director.
Area I - Arts, Letters, and Film
Area II - Religion and Philosophy
*Hebrew language electives are required in addition to the language requirements in the core curriculum.
