Jewish Studies Council

Claremont is positioned to offer a distinctive program in Jewish Studies that provides students a lively, university context to explore Jewish history, philosophy, literature and culture.  Students are invited to design a course of study that reflects their individual interests from an extensive list of courses in the following concentrations: Jewish Philosophical and Mystical Thought, Biblical Interpretation, Comparative Studies, Jewish Women’s Studies, and Philolosophy and Languages of the Ancient World.

The Claremont Jewish Studies program would offer two tracks, one designed for students who may wish to go on for a PhD in Jewish Studies, Religion, History or Philosophy which requires two years of Hebrew and a Master’s thesis, the other designed for students who wish to deepen their understanding of the Jewish tradition and does not require a thesis.
