Academic Programs

The Jewish studies program offers courses in departments  across the humanities and social sciences, and more than 1,000 Carolina students enroll in Jewish studies courses each year. The total number of Jewish studies courses on the books at Carolina has grown to more than 110, with an average of 30 offered each year.

Carolina students can pursue an undergraduate degree in religious studies/Jewish studies. The degree program, which was introduced in 2012, is offered through the department of religious studies, where students earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in religious studies with a concentration in Jewish studies.

Two academic minors – Jewish studies and modern Hebrew – continually attract a diverse  group of Carolina students.

A Graduate Certificate in Jewish studies is offered to Carolina graduate students who are working in the field of Jewish studies.
