Jewish Studies Program (JWST)
Welcome to the Jewish Studies Program at Kent State University
We offer courses and activities that promote understanding of all aspects of Jewish life. Our Minor in Jewish Studies enables students enrolled in any major to become acquainted with the culture, language, literature, history, philosophy and religious customs of the Jewish people from antiquity to the present. Special events held throughout each semester, including lectures, films and art exhibitions, complement and enrich Jewish studies courses.
We offer scholarship opportunities, mentoring and advising for the students in our program.
