In addition, Jewish Studies courses are open to Single Honors students in Biblical and Theological Studies and can be integrated into their course schedule. Amongst the courses offered are a year-long “Introduction to Jewish Civilization” course as well as courses on rabbinic Judaism, Judaism in the Middle Ages and modern times.
