Judaic Studies Minor

Areas of Concentration The minor program is structured into six areas of concentration: ancient Judaism, Jewish history: modern and contemporary, Holocaust studies, Judaic literature and language, Jewish religion and philosophy, and modern Israel. A listing of the courses within each area of concentration is available on the Judaic studies Web site (http://www.umbc.edu/judaic) or from the director. For additional information, call 410-455-2115 or e-mail freyman@umbc.edu.

Requirements The minor in Judaic studies requires a minimum of 18 credits. This requirement can be fulfilled in several ways: (1) by taking at least 18 credits from one area of concentration; (2) by splitting the credits, at least 9+9, across two areas of concentration; or (3) by taking the survey of Judaic studies that includes at least one course from each of five areas of concentration plus one more course, which may include JDST 400 . Selection of the courses should be made with the guidance of an academic advisor. Note: At least 12 of the 18 credits of the minor must be from HEBR or JDST courses. At least six credits of the minor must be from upper-level courses, and at least nine credits must be from courses taken at UMBC.
