Minor in Jewish and Christian Origins

The Religion and Culture minor in Jewish and Christian Origins provides an interdisciplinary approach to the academic study of the origins, development of and cultural impact of two world religions, Judaism and Christianity, from their beginnings in ancient Israel to the parallel developments of rabbinic Judaism and emergent Christianity subsequent to the first Jewish War of 70 C.E. to Late Antiquity.

This minor may be completed in conjunction with any degree in another subject area in the College of Arts and Science.

The Minor average in Jewish & Christian Origins will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the Minor program requirements. Students must complete at least two-thirds of the program requirements (rounded to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement.

There are opportunities to take courses offered through the Saskatoon Theological Union for transfer credit to be applied to the program requirements of this minor. Interested students may contact the Department of Religion and Culture for more information.
