The certificate program is open to all undergraduate students on the Bloomington campus and is designed for students who wish to gain a broad-based knowledge of Jewish Studies. More significant than a minor (which is not offered in Jewish Studies), the certificate is treated like another degree by the university.
Students can complete the minor in Hebrew along with the certificate.
Students in the Jacobs School of Music can complete the certificate and a Bachelor of Music or they can choose to complete a B.S. in Music and an outside field (Jewish Studies). (Students in the School of Music who are interested in pre-cantorial studies should consider the Jewish Sacred Music Program as vocal performance majors.)
To enroll in the certificate program, call the Borns Jewish Studies Program (855-0453) to arrange an appointment to meet with the Jewish Studies advisor, Dr. Carolyn Lipson-Walker. Freshmen are encouraged to meet with the advisor in the Fall before registering for Spring courses.
