Jewish Studies added as major at KU - 6 News

The University of Kansas added a new major to its degree program. Jewish Studies is the newest addition to KU's broad catalog of areas of study.

The Kansas Board of Regents recently approved making Jewish Studies a major for students to choose from. Department officials say that creating the new major is not only a step towards legitimizing the department, but also a way to cater to a growing population on campus.

KU joins Texas and Oklahoma as the only institutions in the Big 12 that offer it as a major.
