Minor in Judaic Studies

The minor in Judaic studies offers courses in Judaism, Jewish thought, and Jewish culture through the ages. The minor recognizes that the Jews form a global community, and, thus, provides a global approach, rather than a regional framework, for exploring Judaism. Students who pursue this minor explore the historical role and contributions of Judaism beyond the Middle East. They learn to appreciate the experiences that connect historical Jewish communities to the present.


All students have opportunities to

  • conduct independent research
  • engage in globally-related activities through coursework and language study at Mason and abroad
  • participate in many forms of public service
  • prepare for their future careers through internships, career-focused minors and other college-to-career activities
