Social Media RSS Feed en Inter-College Program B.S. <p>Founded in 1930, the Inter-College Program (ICP) embodies the University of Minnesota's commitment to individualized undergraduate education by providing cross-college, course/credit-based degree options. Drawing upon the curricular offerings of most of the University's colleges and departments, students design either a bachelor of arts (B.A.) or a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree incorporating a significant amount of coursework from at least two different colleges within the University system. Bachelor of science degrees are those that pertain to the physical or biological sciences, have significant quantitative or investigative tools/methods expectations, or have a pronounced applied/professional component (e.g., public health, education, business, social work). Most students design a degree drawing from two or three departmental areas from the University. Examples include addiction studies and psychology, or Carlson School of Management, manufacturing technology, and economics. ICP is most appropriate for self-directed students whose educational backgrounds and career and intellectual interests require both a clear personal focus and a flexible interdisciplinary approach. Interested students should attend an information session, which are held several times each week. Academic advisers provide a detailed introduction to the program and help students begin the planning process.

The challenge of modernity faced by Jews and Judaism over the last two hundred years has transformed traditional Jewish societies and generated a great measure of difference and diversity. After a history of more than two millennia, Jews have redefined religion, notions of identity, and social organization in contexts of a dominant culture (in Israel) and a minority culture (elsewhere in the world). The broader dynamics of how ethnic, religious, or racial minorities interact with the majority societies are examined in both these contexts. Courses explore the constants and variety of the Jewish experience in different historical periods and geographical settings and include language study.</p> <p>Minor in Jewish Studies</p> <p>The interdisciplinary minor consists of four three-unit core courses and two three-unit elective courses selected on advisement from offerings by a variety of colleges of the University. The purpose of the interdisciplinary Jewish Studies Minor is to acquaint the student with the history, culture, contributions, and religion of the Jewish people as seen through the eyes of modern academic disciplines and with particular reference to contemporary issues and patterns. Students can use the Minor in Jewish Studies to complement their majors and, with advising, to fulfill General Education requirements.</p> <p>Career Outlook</p> <p>The Bachelor of Arts in Modern Jewish Studies and the Jewish Studies Minor offer an excellent background for students interested in Judaism as the basis for scholarly or professional pursuits, increasing the depth of understanding of the history, culture, contributions, and religion of the Jewish people within the context of a major discipline of study and prepare students for careers as educators and community professionals.</p> <p>Jewish Studies Learning Outcomes</p> <p>Students develop interpretive and analytical skills in reading Jewish religious texts.</p> <p>Students develop interpretive and analytical skills in reading Jewish literary texts.</p> <p>Students gain knowledge of the history and cultures of Jews and Judaism in the ancient, medieval, and modern periods in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.</p> <p>Students gain knowledge of the relationships of Jews and Judaism to other peoples, religions, and cultures in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.</p> <p>Students gain knowledge of the ways that Jews and Judaism illuminate the histories, literatures, religions, and cultures of non-Jews in the world.</p> <p>Students gain knowledge of the ways that non-Jewish histories, literatures, religions, and cultures are necessary to understand Jews and Judaism in the world.</p> <p>Students find, read, understand, and assimilate primary and secondary research materials.</p> Tue, 03/24/2020 - 00:48 1151382 1151382 Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) <p>Deakin’s Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) prepares you to be an industry-ready civil engineer capable of planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the built infrastructure systems that are necessary for our day-to-day lives including buildings, transportation networks, water and wastewater systems.
