Judaism is the foundational religion of Western culture and the ancestor of both Christianity and Islam. The Judaic Studies Minor is designed to expose students to the fascinating history, thought and culture of Judaism and the Jewish people. The program embraces the disciplines of Theology, History, English, Modern and Classical Languages, and Philosophy, and it offers internships in Psychology, Sociology and Politics as well as History. Special funding for travel and study in Israel is available through an endowment of the Swig Judaic Studies Program.

The Judaic Studies Minor requires completion of five 4-unit courses (20 units). Please see the Program office for an updated list of Core and Elective
