Judaic Studies

The Interdisciplinary Judaic Studies Minor provides substantive understanding of the historical, religious, literary, philosophical, sociological, and political experiences of the Jews. Drawing on General Education and advanced coursework from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences it offers a diverse disciplinary framing of questions central to the Jewish experience with different perspectives and methodologies. With general and Hebrew language tracks the Judaic Studies Minor is an ideal complement for majors across the University of Maine.

In addition, the Judaic Studies Program sponsors public speakers and events on campus. 

Judaic Studies at UMaine is made possible by the Norman Minsky Judaic Studies Fund.
