Course summary

The Advanced Diploma is a nine-month postgraduate qualification that provides instruction in the Hebrew language for students with a first degree whose knowledge of the language is at an intermediate or lower intermediate level at the time of entry with the objective of bringing their knowledge up to an advanced level. The learning outcome of advanced level Hebrew is intended to prepare students for two possible pathways after the course: (i) an MPhil degree with a research component, with a view to advancing thereafter to a PhD or another career requiring high level language and research skills, (ii) a career in specialist Hebrew language teaching (in, for example, the Secondary Education Sector).

The Diploma consists of three taught modules, which are assessed by written and oral examinations at the end of the course. These are as follows:

Paper 1
Classical Hebrew language: to be assessed by one written examination paper, including translation and grammatical parsing questions.

Paper 2
Modern Hebrew language: to be assessed by one written examination paper, including translation and grammatical parsing questions, and an oral examination in Modern spoken Hebrew.

Paper 3
Either (i) History of the Hebrew language; or (ii) introductory Aramaic. (i) will be assessed by essay questions; (ii) will be assessed by translation and grammatical parsing questions.
