Would the academic study of Judaism such as a typical bible studies course taught in a Jewish Studies department at a University qualify as torah study? I am curious about this both halachicly - would one fulfill the halachic obligation to study torah with this study? As well as hashkaficly, would such study be of equal value to traditional torah study?
