Minor in Judaic Studies


Along with a major and minor in Asian Studies and Religious Studies, the department also offers a minor in the study of Judaism. A total of 18 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.

Awards and Scholarships

Along with REL majors, JUST minors are eligible each spring to be considered for the department’s most prestigious merit-based award, the Silverstein Fellowship.

Additional details about funding opportunities in the department can be found on our Scholarships page.
