Jewish Studies Minor

The Jewish Studies program at Georgia State is designed to introduce students to Jews’ complex encounter with the modern world. Students study topics including Jews’ assimilation and civil rights struggle; religious reform and the rise of ultraorthodoxy; immigration and urbanization; ethnic identity formation; Zionism, Israel, and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict; socialism and Communism; feminism and changing gender roles; anti-Semitism and the Holocaust; American Jewish culture, history and politics; Jewish cultures (Yiddish, Hebrew, and vernacular); interfaith and interethnic alliances; and human rights advocacy.
