Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies centres on a number of major areas: the Classical Hebrew language of the Old Testament of the Bible, Bible studies, Modern Hebrew, Yiddish language and literature, and Jewish civilisation, thought and culture. Units of study encompass language and literature (focusing on Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, and Yiddish) as well as Hebrew and Judaic history and culture.
