471 Biblical Hebrew I (#31803) (3 cr.) D. Shubowitz
TR 5:30-7:30 p.m.

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 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.
