Hebrew at Stanford includes a wide range of courses that expose students to one of the world’s most ancient and diverse cultures.  Stanford offers first year biblical Hebrew, four levels of Modern Hebrew and annual undergraduate/ graduate level seminars on Hebrew literature in translation and in the original.  Our collaboration with Jewish Studies allows our students to study the language in connection to other Jewish languages, Jewish religion, Jewish literatures and histories.  Students can also choose to minor in AME and learn about Hebrew in the context of the politics, literatures and cultures of the Middle East.  Our small classes are tailored to the students’ needs and interests.  All classes include ample opportunities to meet faculty, authors and public figures from Israel and to be immersed in the language and culture through our special online program.
