Hebrew offers a comprehensive series of courses covering the major areas of ancient and modern Hebraic studies. The diversified course of study fully integrates linguistic, literary and cultural approaches to Hebrew studies.
The major consists of 24 credits from courses beyond HEBR 101-102. In general, a Hebrew major is required to complete a minimum of four courses at the 300 level or above in Hebrew. Courses conducted in English may be applied toward partial fulfillment of the Hebrew major provided they are part of a coherent program approved by the head of the division.
Students will be eligible for honors in Hebrew upon completion of HEBR 49100, an Honors Project consisting of individual study and research in Hebrew literature in consultation with a staff member. See the course catalog for honors eligibility details.
The Hebrew minor requires the successful completion of 12 credits at the 200-level or above. Courses counted toward the Hebrew minor must be either language courses or have Hebrew as their language of instruction.
The Hebraic Studies minor requires the successful completion of four HEBR literature and/or culture courses at the 200-level or above, taught in English or in Hebrew. Two Hebrew language courses at 300-level or above may be used toward the minor requirement in lieu of two literature or culture courses.
