Inter-American Jewish Studies Program at UTEP
The Inter-American Jewish Studies Program is a broad, flexible, interdisciplinary program designed for undergraduates to gain an understanding of Jewish civilization and its creative and cultural experience. The program, which is non-theological in orientation, is an academic exploration of the multi-faceted, socio-historical, 4,000 year record of the Jewish people.
