Program Information

School:Queen's University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Jewish/Judaic Studies
Description:Jewish civilization has a recorded history of 4,000 years. With texts spanning from the Hebrew Scriptures to post-modern writing, Jewish literature can be found in many languages. While located in many civilizations, Jews have been most intimately involved with those of the West and the Middle East. Studying Jews and Judaism in these contexts provides students with insight into the complexities of culture and identity. A minor in Jewish studies well complements many majors in the humanities and enhances concentrations in the sciences.

No specific background is required to enrol in many Jewish studies courses. Students considering specialization in Jewish studies should pursue the acquisition of Hebrew offered in the Queen’s Hebrew courses as well as at programs in Israel. Indeed, courses taken at Israeli universities count towards the Jewish Studies minor. Courses in Jewish studies, like many fields in the humanities and social sciences, offer a background for many careers requiring liberal arts training. They also prepare students for graduate study, clergy training, education, and communal service.
