Majoring & Minoring in Jewish Studies

Interested in a Major? A Minor? One of our courses? Please direct all general questions to:

For the 2017-2018 academic year:

Professor Cramsey (scramsey@tulane.edu) will advise all Jewish Studies minors.

Professor Cohen (mcohen@tulane.edu) will advise all Jewish Studies majors.


MAJOR

The major consists of at least 30 credits in Jewish Studies courses, Hebrew courses, or courses in related fields. The major must include JWST 1010 and JWST 1020 as well as courses in each of the following periods:

Pre-modern: At least two courses required from JWST 2100, 3120, 3140, 3150, 3500, 3520, 3530, 3540, 3590, 3600, 4110, 4250, 4350, or CLAS 3140.

Modern: At least two courses required from JWST 2200, 3100, 3210, 3220, 3330, 3340, 3440, 3750, 4150, 4210, 4300, 4320, 4330, 4400, 4420, 4630, 4670.

At least one course should be at the 4000 level or above. Courses taken to fulfill Tulane’s foreign language proficiency requirement may not count toward the major.

• Additional courses require departmental approval for substitution (ex: CLAS and RLST).


MINOR

A minor in Jewish Studies consists of 15 credit hours in 5 courses. Requirements include:

• JWST 1010 and JWST 1020 are the only 1000 level courses that may count toward the minor. However, students are not required to take a 1000 level course.

• Up to two HBRW courses past the 2030 level may count toward the minor.  No courses used to satisfy the University's language requirement maybe used as credits toward the minor.  Hebrew courses are not required to complete the minor.

• At least one course should be at the 4000 level or above (CLAS 3140 accepted substitute). All 3000 or 4000-level coursework for the minor must be taken in residency at Tulane; courses taken abroad do not count toward this requirement.

• Additional courses require departmental approval for substitution (ex: CLAS and RLST).
