The Department offers an interdisciplinary approach to the academic study of all aspects of the Jewish experience. Courses offered by the Department, which are open to all students, address the historical, social, cultural, religious and political life of the Jewish people from ancient times to the present. Drawing on faculty from eight departments, as well as on visiting fellows sponsored by the Bildner Center, the Jewish Studies curriculum offers over sixty interdisciplinary courses. Students pursuing a B.A. degree may major or minor in Jewish Studies. Students may also minor in Hebrew language . The Department of Jewish Studies and the Bildner Center work together to promote Jewish Studies at Rutgers.
