Students in this two-year program study Biblical Hebrew and Akkadian; engage in the critical study of Biblical texts; learn about the Bible in its immediate regional context; acquire a sound knowledge of the history and culture of the Ancient Near East; and take courses in biblical archaeology and philology. Students also have the option to study Modern Hebrew from the beginner's through the advanced levels.
