Fall '17 Update--How Far We've Come!
In just 7 semesters, SMU Jewish Studies has reached 30% of the undergraduate population through 50 classes taught from 5 departments and 30 programs made possible by partnerships with 15 SMU departments, programs, and organizations and 10 Dallas-area organizations.
Jewish Studies epitomizes the kind of multidisciplinary education that 21st-century Universities consider “best practices.” In non-academic terms, we might call this “networking.” Through its extraordinary range of programs, Jewish Studies connects students to a wealth of people, ideas, and institutions. These opportunities enrich their SMU experience and broaden their understanding of the world. That’s how Jewish Studies contributes to shaping world changers.
