Jewish Studies is an interdisciplinary field that allows students to sample courses across the liberal arts curriculum at Temple University. Central to Jewish Studies is an examination of the history, culture, beliefs, customs, practices, texts, and languages of the Jewish people. It addresses the legacy of over two thousand years of Jewish life as it has been lived in Jewish communities across the globe. At Temple we pay particular attention to contemporary issues of Jewish culture, identity, and practice.
Requirements for the Major
Jewish Studies majors may graduate with distinction if they have a GPA of 3.5 or better in the major, a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, and a grade of 3.5 or better in the capstone course (W342: Individual research project with a specific faculty member. Intended for majors in the final semester of coursework).
Interested students should consult with a Jewish Studies advisor to plan an individual program of study.
