Certificate in Jewish Studies

The certificate program is open to all undergraduate students on the Bloomington campus and is designed for students who wish to gain a broad-based knowledge of Jewish Studies. More significant than the Jewish Studies minor, the certificate is treated as an addition to a degree by the University.

Required Courses

The certificate requires at least 24 credit hours, including the requirement below:

  • JSTU J-251/HIST-H 251
  • JSTU-J 252/HIST-H 252
  • 18 additional credit hours with a minimum of 3 courses (9 cr.) at the 300-400 level

At least 9 credit hours must be completed in courses taken through the IUB campus or an IU-administered or IU co-sponsored Overseas Study Program.

All course work must be completed with a grade of C– or higher. A GPA of at least 2.000 for all courses taken in the certificate - including those where a grade lower than C- is earned - is required.

This program of study cannot be combined with the following:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Jewish Studies
  • Minor in Jewish Studies

Students interested in the Jewish Studies certificate should meet with the Jewish Studies advisor, Amanda Lueck. Schedule an advising appointment using the Student Appointment Schedule task found at One.IU.
