Instructional delivery format: 
Proficiency exam
Learner Outcomes: 

After completing the proficiency examination, in addition to the skills involved in the elementary Talmud level, students will be able to: analyze a folio from the Talmud with the commentaries of Rashi, Tosfos, and selected Rishonim; utilize analytical abilities and creativity to discuss the deeper point of contention between two explanations of a piece of Talmud; extrapolate the legal verdict directly from the sources in Jewish Law; and pursue the ramifications of Rabbinic debate out to their practical application in Jewish law today.


The proficiency examination process is intended to measure a body of knowledge that students have acquired through other learning experiences. Each examination is administered under secure and proctored conditions. The exam covers topics in the section of Talmud in Moed. Students are given specifically defined Talmudic pages to prepare and must answer questions based on a selection from those pages.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category OR in the upper division baccalaureate degree category, 8 semester hours in Judaic Studies, Near Eastern Studies, or Religion (12/09) (1/23 revalidation). Each Talmud course can be repeated multiple times, even within the same tractate as long as the Chapters are different.
