Along with a B.A. major and minor in REL, the Department therefore also offers a minor in the study of Judaism. A total of 21 credit hours are required for this minor and courses that fulfill the requirements are regularly offered by the Department each semester (and often in the summer as well). In addition, students can petition for courses in other Departments to count toward the minor, such as classes on the study of antiquity, Hebrew language (taught through the Critical Languages Center), etc.
For further details on the Judaic Studies minor requirements, visit the Religious Studies section of the UA Undergraduate Catalog.
Awards and Scholarships
Along with REL majors, JS minors are eligible each Spring to be considered for the Department’s most prestigious award, the Silverstein Fellowship. More information on funding opportunities in Department can be found on our Scholarships page.
