Research

Since the Jewish studies minor is interdisciplinary in nature and pulls from subjects taught all over campus, research projects typically originate in a student’s major field of interest and may include issues pertaining to Judaism and the history of the Jewish people. For instance, a student interested in researching the politics of the Third Reich might begin their project by finding a research advisor in the political science or history department. From there, he or she might invite a second reader who regularly teaches courses in the Jewish Studies Program.  

The first step to finding the right research opportunity for you is to find a professor with whom you enjoy working and whose work interests you. He or she will be able to help you find appropriate opportunities in your field of interest.
