The interdisciplinary Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies provides a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum in the history, religion, and cultural traditions of the Jewish people and offers instruction in biblical Hebrew language and literature. The program offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree and a minor. It sponsors courses, lectures, and other events of interest to the general student population and the wider community. The Judaic studies program consists of core courses taught under the HBRW, JDST, and REL subject codes and related courses taught in the disciplines of participating faculty members-anthropology, art history, comparative literature, conflict and dispute resolution, English, geography, folklore, German and Scandinavian, history, landscape architecture, music, philosophy, political science, religious studies, Romance languages, and women’s and gender studies. The focus on Jewish cultures and experience as a lens to study the world provides a liberal arts background suitable to careers in a range of professional fields (law, education, rabbinate, social service, public policy) and prepares students for graduate work in Judaic studies, religious studies, and related fields.
