Program Overview

HebrewThis is 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.


Faculty Advisor
Professor Lewis Glinert

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 2016 fall semester runs September 25 to December 28, with exams scheduled to enable students to be back in Dartmouth for Winter Quarter.

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.

Upon completion of the exchange, the exchange coordinator at the host institution will forward the transcript to the Office of the Registrar , Dartmouth College. Future transcripts of exchange program grades may be obtained from the Hebrew University.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
Students pay regular Dartmouth tuition and service fees to Dartmouth for the exchange term and pay room, board and related fees to Hebrew University. Dorm charges ($2480 for the fall semester as of 2016) are paid directly to the Hebrew University; so too tuition for optional summer Hebrew (Ulpan) studies. There is no meal plan requirement. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student. Because the exchange is an official program sponsored by the College, the Dartmouth student does not need to pay the transfer term fee that the College charges to students who study on outside programs during leave terms. 

Financial Aid
Financial aid is available for official exchange programs arranged through the College. Financial aid awards are adjusted to reflect the actual cost of the exchange term. However, students will receive no more scholarship assistance than they would have received for a term at Dartmouth. Any extra costs associated with the program will be covered by additional loan assistance.
