Goals of the Jewish Studies Program

Our focus is twofold:

  • Education - as a scholarly curriculum that offers Jewish Studies degrees (major and minor) that engages students in a rich interdisciplinary curriculum, spanning Jewish history, literature, languages, and culture
  • Outreach - as a bridge that extends into the larger metropolitan of South Florida community, through events and cultural activities

Curricular Objectives: The Jewish Studies Program offers a program that allows students to further their basic understanding of Jewish Studies as an interdisciplinary field. The program utilizes an overarching approach that covers Jewish religion, culture, and history. Therefore, Hebrew Language, Jewish literature, Religion, History, Holocaust, and Israel are essential areas to the program.
