Brandeis offers students unique flexibility in charting their academic path. Just over half of Brandeis undergraduates pursue two majors or minors, often from completely different areas of the academic spectrum.
For those interested in Jewish studies, there are many choices:
Where to begin!
There are Hebrew and Yiddish language classes, a course on "Who Wrote the Bible?" and one on "Jews on Screen: From "'Cohen’s Fire Sale' to the Coen Brothers."
Or how about: "Jewish Feminisms," "Power, Morality and Identity: Jewish Political Thought" and "Carnal Israel: Exploring Jewish Sexuality from Talmudic Times to the Present."
There are also courses on Israel, such as "Israeli Film, Literature and Culture," "Israeli Women Writers on War and Peace" and "Formative Moments in the Disputed Land of Israel-Palestine."
