The Minor in Jewish Studies offers students from any major on the SSU campus a cross-disciplinary concentration in the study of Jewish religion, culture, and people. Jewish Studies is by its very nature an interdisciplinary field of study, blending courses from a wide range of academic disciplines and perspectives. For a minor in Jewish studies, students must take three core courses and eight additional elective units of courses from at least two different areas of study.
