Jewish Studies

Jewish Studies is an intercollegiate, interdisciplinary program which offers the student the opportunity to explore the rich culture and the historical experience of the Jewish people, their unique traditions, their interactions with other cultures, and their impact on world civilization. The program draws on the academic expertise of faculty in such disciplines as literature, history, religious studies, philosophy, psychology, and politics. It provides significant preparation for students considering careers in education, social work, public policy, law, business, the rabbinate, Jewish education, and scholarly research.

A Scripps student may petition the Academic Policy Subcommittee for a self-designed interdisciplinary major or minor in Jewish Studies. Courses should be chosen carefully in consultation with the student’s academic adviser and with consideration for the existing resources within The Claremont Colleges.
