The study of the Hebraic tradition, one of the pillars of modern Western civilization, has a wide range of practical and artistic applications. Students looking to supplement their knowledge of history, archaeology and anthropology can bolster their studies through familiarity with the Hebrew language and Jewish culture.

Study abroad opportunities give students the chance to practice their language skills and engage with the cultural and historical sites they explore in the classroom. Israel's prominence on the world stage makes the minor particularly useful to journalism, business and international studies majors.

The Center for Judaic Studies partners with us to provide a minor in Judaic studies with a Hebrew emphasis. Learn more about this option on the Judaic Studies minor program page.
