Service Learning & Honors

Service Learning

Service Learning through Jewish Studies allows students to connect with professionals within the KU community and beyond. Through community and campus partnerships, study abroad opportunities, and volunteer and civic engagement, students can broaden their depth of experience in "real world" environments and develop career oriented networks.

To pursue a course in Service Learning, The KU Center for Service Learning provides a list of appropriate organizations. In addition, students must meet with the Director of Jewish Studies or the Undergraduate Director of Jewish Studies to establish the course plan. Please email for more information.


To be considered for honors, candidates must have a minimum overall grade-point average of 3.25 and a grade-point average in Jewish Studies of 3.50, at the time of declaring their intention to seek honors and by graduation. Students should declare their intention to seek honors no later than the time of enrollment for the final undergraduate semester. For more information visit the KU Honors program website.
