About Jewish Studies

The Jewish Studies Program provides an interdisciplinary minor and a thematic sequence. These options are available and applicable to all Miami students. The minor offers students critical approaches to Judaism from ancient times to present, such as:

  • history
  • religion
  • Hebrew
  • anthropology
  • German studies

Through these different areas of study, our program fosters an intimate learning environment and academic achievement. Students gain an understanding of the Jewish experience, including culture and life. In collaboration with other on-campus Jewish organizations, Miami students can even explore this unique community outside of the classroom.
