Learner Outcomes: 

After completing the proficiency examination, in addition to the skills involved in the Intermediate Talmud level, students will be able to: analyze an unseen folio from the Talmud with a selection of the major early and later commentaries; utilize analytical abilities and creativity to understand the deeper point of contention between several explanations of a piece of Talmud; extrapolate the legal verdict directly from the sources in Jewish Law, apply the axioms from the Talmud to other modern day situations; and discover corollaries between the principle and the situation.


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 Nezikin. Students must answer questions based upon an unseen folio from the Talmud with additional commentaries.

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.
