Jewish Studies Undergraduate Degrees

The B.A. in Jewish Studies will prepare students for graduate study in general areas such as Religious Studies, History and Political Science, and in more specific programs in theological, rabbinical and cantorial schools. Students will also be prepared to enter Jewish-focused centers of higher education such as the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago.

With the language requirement, Jewish Studies offers a BA - there is no BGS degree in Jewish Studies.
