Dear AJU Students:
It is with much enthusiasm that I welcome you to American Jewish University's College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). The college offers an undergraduate degree that combines:
- deep immersion in the liberal arts, through interdisciplinary seminars, writing-intensive courses, and community-based learning;
- an opportunity to specialize in a major area of study that prepares you for a professional career and/or advanced graduate education; and
- a commitment to a pluralistic integration of Jewish thought and cultural practices.
Whether you have come to this website as a potential applicant, inquiring about our academic programs, or as a current CAS student looking for information about a particular degree requirement, I hope you discover both the traditional and unique features of our educational model. As university Provost and CAS Dean, I am delighted to head this academic institution that over the years has educated countless graduates who are making stellar contributions to their local communities and to a variety of professions, including education, law and medicine.
I hope you will take the time to review the biographies of the CAS faculty. One reason I recently decided to join the AJU senior management team is the quality of our core faculty; each of our professors holds a Ph.D. and makes scholarly contributions through conference presentations and publications.
We are a small institution; this allows us to know our students as individuals, offer classes that do not have to be held in anonymous lecture halls, and respond to student needs in a professional and personal fashion.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any questions about CAS and undergraduate education at American Jewish University more generally.
Stuart J. Sigman, Ph.D.
Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
