Additional Notes

The recommended academic plan for a concurrent major in Jewish Studies assumes a primary major with 36 credits and a total credit requirement of 123.  Actual credit requirements may vary depending on the primary major.

All incoming freshmen must take a First Year Seminar (FYS) during fall or spring of their first year.  Most FYSs in the College of the Liberal Arts are 3 credits and count as a General Humanities (GH) or General Social Sciences (GS) course.

All students must take a United States Cultures (US) and an International Cultures (IL) course.  J ST 010, required of all J ST majors, fulfills the International Cultures requirement. The United States Cultures requirement may be satisfied by completing a US designated General Education, Bachelor of Arts, major, or elective course.

All students must complete at least one 3 credit WRITING INTENSIVE course.  Courses with the suffixes W, M, X, or Y satisfy this requirement.

At least one Natural Science course must be a laboratory course.
