The Columbian College of Arts and Sciences offers an interdisciplinary program in Judaic Studies leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The program, whose purview extends from the ancient Near East to modern-day America, showcases and interprets the artistic expression, history, languages, literatures, philosophy, politics, and religion of the Jews over time and place.
The Program in Judaic Studies also provides students with the opportunity to interact with their professors both within and without the classroom. It sponsors trips to the theatre and to museums, organizes special events, including lectures and performances by celebrated personalities in a wide range of fields, and encourages students to drop by our cozy building at 2142 G Street for a cup of tea and a spot of conversation.
