Hebrew Language and Literature

About the Section

The Hebrew Language and Literature Section teaches Hebrew at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Students will be admitted to the Hebrew Section whether or not they have already studied Hebrew. The courses offered by the Hebrew Section are designed for students of Hebrew as a foreign language. Students for whom Hebrew is a second or home language will be accepted under certain conditions, and after prior discussion with the Section Head.
