Hebrew and Hebraic Studies
Shalom, and welcome to the Hebrew Division of the Department of Classical and Oriental Studies.
The Hebrew program at Hunter, founded in 1941, is now among the most extensive undergraduate programs in Hebrew in the United States. The division offers a language sequence for newcomers to Hebrew, as well as literature courses for students with prior background. Other offerings address Hebraic and Judaic history and culture more generally, including text courses in English translation.
The division offers a major in Hebrew; and two minors, one in Hebrew concentrating on language and text study in the original, and the other in Hebraic Studies concentrating on culture and literature in translation.
The two-year sequence of Elementary and Intermediate Hebrew (HEBR 101-102 and 201-202) may be used to fulfill the Hunter College language requirement.
For advisement and further information, and for proper language placement or exemption from the language requirement, please contact the Program Director Professor Yitzhak Berger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 772-5058.
