COLORADO SPRINGS, FEB 1. CU’s Board of Regents unanimously approved the proposal submitted in the fall to permit the Program in Jewish Studies to become a degree-granting program, providing undergraduates with the opportunity to pursue Jewish Studies as a major as well as increased options for minors in the field of Jewish Studies.
When CU first began its Jewish Studies program in 2007, about a dozen students pursued the certificate. This year, 75 students are enrolled in the certificate program. Provost Russell Moore told the board that no other schools in the Rocky Mountain region offer a Jewish Studies major.
The Jewish Studies Program thanks its donors, students, faculty, administration and staff who worked to make this possible.
