To complete the minor in Jewish studies the student must consult with a member of the advisory committee and/or the director to identify a course of study that includes five courses from the list below, at least one of which must be in Hebrew language. The five courses will normally include an introductory course in Judaism (JWST 208/RELG 208 or JWST 283/RELG 283) and a 400-level seminar or independent study.
No more than three courses from one department may be counted toward the minor.
