Students studying Hebrew and Jewish Studies progress from an elementary working knowledge of the language toward oral and written proficiency. Once students have mastered the unique writing system of the language, they are introduced gradually to basic patterns of speech and grammar. The rich body of Hebrew literature is first studied in English translation; as students progress in the major and develop their language skills, they continue their readings in Hebrew.
Hebrew is applicable in a variety of settings in the United States and abroad. Mastery of Hebrew allows students to consider careers in such fields as education, government, international trade, banking, print or electronic media, or tourism.
Careers in which Hebrew is the primary emphasis include teaching Hebrew at all levels; interpreting and translating for the United Nations, government, or for private and public organizations; and a variety of positions in the travel and tourism industry at home or abroad, such as flight attendant, travel agent and tour guide.
Careers in which proficiency in Hebrew is a good secondary tool include banking and finance, business, sales, export purchasing, foreign market analysis, journalism, foreign correspondence, science and research, library science, hotel management, publishing, and radio broadcasting.
