Departmental Honors

The honors program offers qualified Jewish Studies majors the opportunity to pursue a research project in depth for their entire senior year under the supervision of a faculty advisor. To be considered, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, and 3.4 or higher in Jewish Studies courses.  Jewish Studies majors who wish to pursue an honors project should meet with the Department’s Undergraduate Advisor during the second term of their junior year to plan their project, and to submit the formal application to the Department’s office by the end of their junior year.  Students enroll in Jewish Studies honors courses during their senior year and upon the completion of their honors project must pass an oral examination.
