Emma Cooke '14

I'm a Neuroscience major and Jewish Studies minor, entering my senior year in fall 2013. I hadn't planned to pursue a humanities minor, but focusing on Jewish Studies has given me the chance to engage in a completely different kind of learning than in the sciences. I've taken courses in Hebrew, Israeli literature, Yiddish film, and Judaism and the environment, and also had the chance to take courses in Jewish Studies while studying abroad in Canada. The Jewish Studies faculty is amazing and the course offerings are both diverse and stimulating; I've had the chance to study a variety of interesting subjects that I never expected to and that proved very rewarding. I would definitely recommend Jewish Studies as a major or minor, particularly to people who might be in seemingly "incompatible" fields-it offers a chance to read, reflect and refine your thinking. I'm very glad I decided to take a Jewish Studies FYS my first semester-it opened up a whole new path that I otherwise wouldn't have known about!
