Programs

The Department of Hebrew Language offers a variety of programs whose goal is to introduce students to the complex history of the Hebrew language and its structure, and to provide them with skills and theoretical tools for advanced study of Hebrew. Our academic programs focus on:

  • In-depth study of Hebrew through the ages, in comparison to genetically close languages of the Semitic language family
  • Reading and interpretation of ancient Hebrew sources and critical use of modern research on Hebrew
  • Developing analytical, linguistic, and philological skills
