Program Overview

In 2014 Dartmouth is set to launch a Fall Semester exchange program in Hebrew and Israeli Studies with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Rothberg School of International Studies). Dartmouth students will study and reside at the University’s stunning Mt. Scopus campus, overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem and the Judean Desert.

Academics

Faculty Advisor
Professor Lewis Glinert

Curriculum
Participants will take two courses in Hebrew language and three electives (taught in English) from a range of courses in Israeli cultural and social studies and Hebrew cultural history. The 2014 fall semester runs October 19 to January 1, with exams scheduled to enable students to be back in Dartmouth for Winter Quarter.

Prerequisites
Preference will be given to applicants with one year of Hebrew language at Dartmouth. Cumulative GPA minimum: 3.0. Applications must be submitted to Dartmouth by February 1. Two recommendations are required, one or both from a faculty member who has taught you; the other can also be from an undergraduate dean.

Participants have the additional (non-credit) option of taking the Rothberg School’s four or eight week intensive Hebrew course in the August-September leading up to the fall semester.

More information will appear, as and when available, at the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures website.

Financial Information

Tuition for the semester is to be paid to Dartmouth. Dorm charges ($2385 for the fall semester as of 2013) are paid directly to the Hebrew University; so too tuition for optional summer Hebrew (Ulpan) studies. There is no meal plan requirement.
