Hebrew language is a central part of the Jewish Studies Program. It is coordinated through the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures in the College of Arts and Humanities.
At the beginning of each semester, several dates will be designated for taking the Hebrew placement test. The placement test has oral and written components. Any student who is not continuing from a previous Hebrew level is required to take the placement test; in addition, an instructor may require testing of any student whose level is undetermined. Please note that in mid-fall, 2011, the placement test will taken online through the College of Arts and Humanities.
