Judaic Studies Minor

Department of Religious Studies
212 Manly Hall

Admission into the minor. Students are expected to formally declare a minor. With the assistance of an advisor in the minor department, students should complete the “Declaration of Minor” form before or during the third year of full-time enrollment.

Grade point average. A 2.0 grade point average in the minor is required for completion of the degree. The minor GPA is calculated based on all courses applicable to the minor that the student has attempted at UA and all work attempted applicable to the minor throughout the entire higher education career.

Minor courses. The minor in Judaic studies requires the successful completion of the following 21 semester hours:

REL 100 or REL 1053
REL 1103
REL 2243
REL 2383
REL 223, REL 332, REL 346, REL 347, or REL 4106
REL 490*3

*REL 490 is offered only in the spring semester. Students are expected to enroll during the senior year, but can enroll as early as the junior year.

Upper-level residency. A minimum of 6 hours of 300- and 400-level courses in the minor must be earned on this campus.

Ancillary. This minor does not require ancillary courses.

Additional minor requirements. Students majoring in religious studies may not apply the same religious studies courses toward both the religious studies major and the Judaic studies minor. They must earn 21 hours of REL courses for the minor and 33 hours of REL courses for the major. Students are responsible for ensuring that they have met all University, college, major, and minor requirements. However, each student must meet with an advisor in the major department for academic planning and to be cleared for registration each semester. If necessary, students may consult with the minor department academic advisor for questions concerning minor requirements.
