The Center for Judaic Studies currently offers courses in both undergraduate and graduate level courses.
For more information, contact the Center for Judaic Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (434) 592-3249.
Our core courses and elective courses have been offered for undergraduate and graduate students as intensive courses since March 2008 and as resident elective courses since September 2009. Starting in 2011, our courses will be offered through the Liberty School of Religion and possibly as Intensives during the winter and summer Intensive Periods. As of the fall of 2012, a minor and a concentration in Jewish Studies are available in the undergraduate level through the School of Religion.
One of the primary purposes of the Center is to engage in primary research in the field of Judaic Studies.
From its inception the Center for Judaic Studies has been involved in several research projects that were under the sponsorship of other universities and organizations were transferred to the university with Dr. Randall Price who was directing these projects.
These include an archaeological excavation project in Israel, the publication of the excavation report, an archaeological project in eastern Turkey related to the search for Noah’s Ark, and several publications (a handbook on Biblical Archaeology and a critical commentary on the Book of Daniel). The first of these has now become wedded to an academic course and it is envisioned that the others will also play a significant role for the Liberty academic community.
