The Jewish Studies minor enables students enrolled in any major to learn about different aspects of Jewish heritage and culture. Each year, scholarships may be awarded to students pursuing the Jewish Studies minor.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
