Judaic Studies

Dating back nearly 4000 years, Judaism is the world's oldest monotheistic faith and the foundation of both Christianity and Islam. Studying Judaism is thus central for understanding the roots of Western Civilization. The Judaic Studies minor at Fairfield University is an interdisciplinary program, primarily based in the Departments of Religious Studies and History. In addition to its undergraduate courses, the Judaic Studies program also presents campus-wide lectures and other special events in cooperation with the University's Carl and Dorothy Bennett Center for Judaic Studies.
