The Center for Jewish Civilization offers a variety of courses for students pursuing the minor in Jewish Civilization. These courses are also open to students who are not seeking the minor.

CJC courses are identified with both JCIV and INAF course numbers. The list of courses that count towards the minor is not limited to those courses with a JCIV or INAF course number, as some departments choose to x-list courses with the CJC rather than list the course under two different departments.

See below for a list of current courses being offered. Click the title to read a description of each course.
