Beginning in Fall 2012, you can major in Jewish Studies. You can also minor in Jewish Studies or Modern Hebrew. The Carolina Center for Jewish Studies, an interdisciplinary academic program in the College of Arts and Sciences that promotes a deeper understanding of Jewish history, culture and thought through its teaching, research and community outreach initiatives, has information about these programs and other events related to Jewish culture.
