The Jewish and Holocaust Studies Minor Program

Jewish and Holocaust Studies Minor

The MTSU Jewish and Holocaust Studies (JHS) minor offers undergraduate students an opportunity to study the diasporic culture and religion of the Jewish people alongside the Holocaust (also called the Shoah or the Nazi genocide) within an interdisciplinary minor program housed in the College of Liberal Arts. Studies include courses in history and culture, the humanities and social sciences, and the methodologies of Jewish studies and genocide studies disciplines. The 18-hour minor provides opportunity for rich and enlightening intellectual development that complements many majors, from History and World Literatures to Sociology and Religious Studies. Students are encouraged to develop greater understanding of the relationship of the past to the present and to embrace tolerance and respect for diversity as they confront hate and reject violence.
