B.A. Degree

Undergraduate studies in the department are organized around three foci:

  • The history of Hebrew
  • Linguistic skills
  • The cultural, historical, and literary background of Hebrew texts

 

Students in the B.A. program gain knowledge in all historical layers of the language, including its relationship with close members of the Semitic language family. They also enjoy rigorous training in linguistics, essential for understanding the inner workings of language and its internal structure.

 

Students can elect to specialize in one of two tracks: a linguistic track and a track in Jewish studies.
