Courses in Jewish Oral History combine a background in modern Jewish history, which is needed to understand the significance of oral histories, and the proper techniques and legal issues involved in recording oral histories through various media. A collaboration of faculty from History, German, English, and other parts of the campus created the Jewish Oral History program. The Jewish Oral History minor builds from proposed semester courses.
