Jewish Studies

The Jewish Studies program at Drexel offers an array of undergraduate courses on Jewish history, culture, religion and politics. The program explores the Jewish experience through time and from a variety of viewpoints. Jewish Studies courses satisfy the elective requirements of many majors, and can be taken as part of the Louis Stein Minor in Jewish Studies.


The Louis Stein Minor in Jewish Studies gives students the opportunity to explore and understand the history, culture, politics and religion of the Jewish people. Through interdisciplinary coursework and directed field study, students investigate the Jewish experience from both a contemporary and a historical perspective. The minor in Jewish Studies program has dedicated itself to three areas:

  • Jewish life in Europe before World War II
  • Intergenerational ethnic education
  • Israel
