UCF Judaic Studies Program established 1984.For more than 25 years, the Judaic Studies Program at UCF has enhanced Judaic knowledge, scholarship, and awareness in Central Florida. The program offers an interdisciplinary Minor in Judaic Studies and a Certificate in Judaic Studies. Judaic Studies forms an essential component of the university curriculum because the roots of western culture, civilization, and major world religions lie in ancient Jewish thought and practice, as manifested in the Hebrew Bible and subsequent writings.
