The Minor consists of a coherent set of five courses in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, of which two may be cross-listed courses or courses taken at other universities.

How to Become a NEJS Minor

Students who wish to minor in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies meet with undergraduate advising head Jonathan Krasner and are assigned a faculty advisor in accordance with their individual areas of interest. Together with their advisor, they develop a plan of study designed to fulfill the requirements of the minor and to meet their personal interests and needs. With the approval of the department, a limited amount of credit may be awarded for appropriate courses taken at other universities.
