As a Jewish Studies minor at Rollins, you’ll investigate the religion, history, and culture of the Jewish people. Along the way, you’ll develop a unique perspective of the Jewish culture’s interactions with the civilizations of the world through an interdisciplinary approach that comes philosophy, religion, art, music, anthropology, and more.
You’ll graduate with a knowledge base that will help you pursue advanced degrees or careers in education, religious studies, international politics, history, foreign languages, social work, public administration, law, or foreign service.
The multidisciplinary Jewish Studies Program draws faculty from a range of departments, including religious studies, global languages, English, and more.
