The Career Center's Career Guide for Judaic Studies

Each Career Guide highlights curriculum requirements, as well as skills and abilities that may be developed and applied through each course of study. To complement the academic information, a range of interesting occupational opportunities are listed as a starting point for considering how academic experiences may translate to professional work settings. The Career Guide series represents a collaborative effort between The Career Center and numerous academic units.


Both a major and minor in Judaic Studies are offered by the Frankel Center, where undergraduate students receive a well-balanced understanding of Modern Jewish Literature and Culture, Jewish History and Social Science, and Classical and Modern Judaism in Law and Religion, along with a strong knowledge of Yiddish or Hebrew.  The undergraduate curriculum aims to situate Jewish Studies within a broad-based liberal arts education and provides a framework for developing critical thinking and informed engagement. Prospective majors and minors should consult the department advisor. Appointments are scheduled via our Student/Fellow Coordinator at 734.615.6097.
