Jewish Studies (JWST)

Director: L. Cushing

The Jewish Studies Program at Colgate encompasses a wide range of studies in Jewish religion, history, politics, and arts. In recognition of the complex interaction between religion and culture in Jewish life, and the diversity of Jewish historical experience, Jewish studies at Colgate is necessarily interdisciplinary. The Jewish studies minor makes use of faculty and course offerings in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and university studies, and encourages students to explore their particular interests, be they religious, literary, or political.
