Chair's Message

Michael Cohen, Chair, Jewish Studies Department

Jewish Studies represents an interdisciplinary approach to thinking and learning, enabling students to incorporate subject matter and modes of inquiry from across the university. Our courses cover the breadth of the Jewish experience, equipping students for future success by emphasizing communication skills, critical thinking, and writing.  Through the study of the Jewish people from multiple perspectives, our aim is to provide an important lens for understanding the inner dynamics of the human experience.
