Bucknell offers two full years of coursework in Modern Hebrew language. Courses are taught mostly in Hebrew and designed to maximize language proficiency and communicative abilities.
Small class sizes create a dynamic and personal learning environment, which promotes language immersion and students' progress. Students receive individual attention and many return for additional courses with the faculty.
Students gain additional practice in the weekly Hebrew Table and often participate in reading at Jewish Services at the Hillel.
Hebrew coursework counts towards the Jewish studies minor, and it complements Middle Eastern studies, political science, international relations, and courses on Hebrew and Israeli culture given in English.
Career paths often include academics, public service, and technology in Israel, an eminent hi-tech economy. Graduate work for students of Modern Hebrew often includes Bible studies, Judaism, political science and Near Eastern studies.
Summer and yearly study in Israeli universities (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa) allows student to immerse themselves in Hebrew language and Israeli culture.Learn about Global & Off-campus Education at Bucknell
