PROFESSOR B. HALPERN, Director, Jewish Studies Program
This major furnishes students with expertise in Jewish Studies and in the Hebrew language. It offers undergraduates the opportunity to pursue a targeted program of area study leading to a baccalaureate major in the liberal arts. The major required 6 credits beyond 12-credit level proficiency in Hebrew, or in another appropriate language, subject to approval. Advanced language study is especially recommended for those planning to continue their education beyond the Bachelor of Arts degree. In addition, the program requires the following: an overseas educational experience or internship experience (the latter in the United States or abroad); advanced course work; plus a capstone seminar for which a senior thesis project may be substituted.
For the B.A. degree in Jewish Studies, a minimum of 121 credits is required.
