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

  • JSTU J-251/HIST-H 251
  • JSTU-J 252/HIST-H 252
  • 6 more courses (18 cr.) in Jewish Studies with a minimum of 3 courses (9 cr.) at the 300-400 level

At least 3 courses (excludes credit from language testing) in Jewish Studies must be taken on the IUB campus.

A maximum of 3 courses may be credited from language testing or from transfer credit. Courses taken at Hebrew University (via IU Overseas Study) count as IUB courses.

All course work must be completed with a grade of C– or higher.

Students wishing to participate in the certificate program must register with the advisor in Jewish Studies. Zoom appointments with Dr. Carolyn Lipson-Walker may be arranged by emailing
