Judaic Studies Courses at the University of Manitoba Fall 2023 and Winter 2024

posted here June 20, 2023



Judaic Studies courses at the University of Manitoba will be offering courses once again this coming academic year - Fall (2023) and Winter (2024) terms. Most of the courses will be in-class, but special arrangements may be made with the instructor if one cannot attend in-class sessions. All courses are open to students and the public if they apply and are admitted to the university.


Courses can be taken for either credit toward a degree or as an auditor (non-credit).


For individuals over 65 years of age, there is no tuition since you can audit for only a very nominal registration fee. If you’re looking for something different to do this coming Fall and Winter, please consider taking for credit or auditing (non-credit) any of our courses (below). Please forward this information to anyone you think may be interested.


For those who have never been students at the University of Manitoba, they will need to apply to the University of Manitoba, General Studies to become a student to take a course either for credit or to audit (deadline August 1). We recommend that you apply by July 1st for admission if you are interested in taking (auditing or for credit) any of the courses below. Course registration takes place after admission and usually in late July and August.


For information on how to apply, please contact Student Advisor, General Studies, Division of Extended Education - Karen Nickerson (Phone: 204.474.8330) or Michelle Kidd (Phone 204.474.7154) - by email ([email protected]) and one of them will respond. Email is preferable since most people are working from home. Rather than working your way through the process of registering to audit the course if you are not already a student, Karen and Michelle will take you through the registration process.


Any questions about particular courses can be answered by the Judaic Studies Program’s Administrative Assistant Linda Albanese ([email protected]), or the Program Coordinator, Prof. Haskel Greenfield ([email protected]).
