The Israel Studies Advisor is Professor Paul Scham.  He  will meet with students each semester.

Each semester the Advisor, in consultation with the interdepartmental faculty advisory committee, will produce a list of courses currently offered, with particular attention to special topics and other exceptional courses.  Other courses may be applied to the Minor with the approval of the Advisor.

Prospective Minors must submit applications to the Advisor. Applications to the Minor will be accepted beginning October 1 in the Fall Semester and March 1 in the Spring Semester for enrollment in the following Semester.

Students must have

a. Completed ISRL342/JWST342/HIST376 (or equivalent) with a grade of C (2.0) or higher.
b. Completed at least 30 credits hours of undergraduate study prior to application.
c. Been admitted into the Minor prior to the completion of the final six credits of the Minor.

Up to 25 students will be enrolled annually as Minors on a first-come, first-served basis.

Enrolled minors will be required to meet with the advisor annually during the Fall or Spring registration periods. Students who fail to meet with their advisor or who fail to pursue their course of study may be unenrolled.
