Modern Hebrew (Certificate)
The certificate program in modern Hebrew provides students with a firm foundation in modern Hebrew language and a broad knowledge of Israeli culture, leading to advanced skills in reading, writing and conversing in the language. The program includes the study of literature, politics and history, enriching students' knowledge of the Middle East and offering them deeper understanding of current affairs.
ASU students admitted to a degree program in any field of study are eligible to enroll in the modern Hebrew certificate program. In order to be admitted to the certificate program, students must complete HEB 101 and 102 Elementary Modern Hebrew to satisfy the requirements to enroll in HEB 201 Intermediate Modern Hebrew.
A student pursuing an undergraduate certificate must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student at ASU. Undergraduate certificates are not awarded prior to the award of an undergraduate degree. A student already holding an undergraduate degree may pursue an undergraduate certificate as a nondegree-seeking graduate student.
Graduates who have combined the certificate in modern Hebrew with their major program of study may become more marketable to employers, and they often decide to pursue employment in political analysis, tourism and hospitality, foreign policy, international business, media, translation, education or marketing.
