In college, I majored in Judaic Studies and Linguistics. Most of the classes I took fell into one or the other, or both, of those major requirements. Aside from the JUST and the LING classes, I also took:
Ice SkatingWithin my majors, I took a wide variety of classes including "Teaching English as a Second Language", "Blacks and Jews in American Cultural History", "Love, Wine, and Death" (medieval Hebrew secular poetry), "Synagogue and State", and a few courses in Sociolinguistics and Linguistic Anthropology. The Linguistics major had a requirement of a certain number of language courses, which I fulfilled by taking Hebrew, Spanish, Yiddish, Arabic, Japanese, and Irish [Gaelic].
Religions of the World
The Dynamic Earth (an introductory geology class)
Epics: Gilgamesh to StarWars
Buried Cities & Lost Tribes (an introductory archeology class)
Elementary Logic (to fulfill the math requirement)
Introduction to Poetry
Prose Poems / Flash Fiction (creative writing)
History of the Future (a history course on trends and predictions)
Musics of the World
Global Change: A Geological Perspective
Ancient Near Eatern Religions
If I were going back to college now, I would definitely take more Anthropology and Archeology. I also realized on the day of my graduation that I should have majored or minored in Geology, instead of just taking two courses; there's one GEOL professor at my university who integrated exciting field trips into all his courses, from measuring the gorges of the Finger Lakes and knocking Devonian fossils out of exposed rock by Interstate 81 to going spelunking in caves near Albany. I would also take even more Phys Ed courses. Those were fun.
Unfortunately, when I was at Hebrew University for graduate school they were fairly strict about what courses we could take. Because I was in a Jewish Education program, my 'advisor' insisted, there was no way I could take a Geology of Israel course. Todah la’Eil I was able to justify and/or sneak into my schedule a course on Biblical Research Using Computer Analysis and one on Comparative Semitic Linguistics.
