Hebrew and Jewish Studies


The Hebrew and Jewish Studies program offers a unique opportunity to study the development of Jewish civilisation, Israeli history and culture, and the study of the Hebrew language. The program investigates the history, literature, archaeology, philosophy, ethnography and social theory of Jewish society and culture. Students are encouraged to engage in contemporary debates about ethnicity and identity, assimilation, exile and Diaspora cultures. They will explore topics that draw on extensive archival resources available in Australia and internationally. Students will benefit from this interdisciplinary breadth and have the opportunity to combine this knowledge with Hebrew language study which is taught from beginners to advanced level.
