After your degree
Immerse yourself in the history, culture and literature of Jews and deepen your understanding of the lived experience of the Jewish community through time and today. Touching on ancient and modern languages, politics, philosophy, and law, compare Jewish and other religious traditions, explore contemporary scenes and assess how mysticism, rituals and philosophy intersect with popular culture, sexuality, feminism, food, ethics and worship.
As you look at all facets of Jewish experience, including the lives of women in all periods (the Talmud, medieval, modern) and the Holocaust, you’ll think deeply about what it means to be Jewish and to be an ethnic minority. You’ll also have the chance to build your knowledge of Hebrew.
Thanks to a growing emphasis on field work in Montreal, you’ll get to interact with members of various Jewish sects and Jews who’ve moved toward becoming non-religious.
You’ll also have the opportunity to take advantage of funding to study in Israel through the Azrieli Institute.
A Bachelor of Arts degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
*Honours is a highly concentrated program, ideal for students planning to continue to graduate studies. If you are interested in Honours, speak with your program advisor in your first year of study at Concordia. Students applying to the University are able to apply to the major.

Honours in Judaic Studies
It’s a tight-knit department, and there is a great sense of community in the whole program.
Concordia taught me personal responsibility and it gave me a great foundation.
The Minor in Israel Studies is designed to allow students to complement their core area of study with courses in history, political science, religion, literature and language. The study of modern Israel is a significant focus of the program, but students will also explore this birthplace of major civilizational currents in all its facets and time periods.
