JSTU-B 100 Introduction to Biblical Hebrew I/4 cr./Staff
MWF 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Joint listed with NELC-N 471
This course will introduce you to the language, grammar, and
vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament). No prior
knowledge of Hebrew is assumed! The course begins with the Hebrew
alphabet and systematically works through a standard textbook. The
exercises in the textbook are based on selections from the Hebrew
Bible, so that very soon students will start to get comfortable with
biblical style vocabulary. Readings from the Bible will be
introduced, as mastery is gradually gained. The course can be
counted toward the major in Near Eastern Languages and Culture
and/or toward the area certificate and major in Jewish Studies.
Students may be able to use Biblical Hebrew courses toward a Hebrew
minor. Under certain circumstances, six hours of Biblical Hebrew may
also be counted toward a Religious Studies major. It cannot be
guaranteed that more than two semesters of Biblical Hebrew will be
taught in sequence.
