Graduate Level Hebrew
Offered On Campus
Graduate-level Hebrew course are offered on campus, and constitute part of the course of study for students in the cantorial- and rabbinic-ordination programs.
A sequence of four one-semester courses equip students for work with classical texts; they presume prior proficiency in Modern Hebrew. These courses are Hebrew Grammar (Intensive) (fall), Biblical Hebrew (spring), Aramaic (fall), and Rabbinic Hebrew (spring). Students who do not have the requisite level of Modern Hebrew proficiency may, depending upon their level, first take Hebrew 3 and 4, which are offered in the summer, and Hebrew 5 and 6, which are offered in the fall and spring, respectively. Hebrew 5 and 6 are required for Mekorot students.
