Undergraduate Minor in Jewish Studies

It is easy to add a minor in Jewish Studies and with it a whole new dimension to your undergraduate studies, particularly for Business, SPEA, Education, Informatics, Public Health, and Social Work majors. By studying Jewish Studies, an interdisciplinary field, you will learn more about cultural and religious diversity which can be applied to real-world situations, whether in Jewish contexts or otherwise, and you will enrich the intellectual breadth of your experience at IU.
