Minor in Hebrew

A Hebrew minor will consist of 18 hours, at least 15 of which must be Biblical and Modern Hebrew language courses. The other 3 hours may be in any other Semitic language (Arabic, Aramaic and Syriac are currently offered at FSU). Note that courses counting toward any University language requirement cannot be counted toward the minor.

  • Students must demonstrate they have done some work in both Biblical and Modern Hebrew. This will normally mean that they must take at least 3 hours of Biblical Hebrew and 3 hours of Modern Hebrew (note that these do not have to be taken as part of the minor). All courses in both Biblical and Modern Hebrew can be counted toward the minor.
  • Students must reach the Intermediate level in either Modern or Biblical Hebrew.
  • No courses counting toward any University language requirement can be counted toward the minor. (Students may, of course, use either Biblical or Modern Hebrew for their language requirement and take an additional 18 hours for the minor.)./li>
  • A minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses taken for the minor.
  • No course taken for the minor may be taken S/U. (Courses at other institutions that only offer Hebrew courses S/U must include some documentation that the student has earned the equivalent of a C-).
  • At least 9 hours of the 18 required must be taken at FSU.
