The international interdisciplinary certificate program for hebrew and biblical studies

February 06, 2017

The international interdisciplinary certificate program for hebrew and biblical studies

The Center of Jewish Studies at the National University of Ostroh Academy (hereafter, NUOA) offers an Interdisciplinary Certificate Academic Program for Hebrew and Biblical Studies (hereafter, the Program).

The goal of the Program is teaching of Hebrew and various philological disciplines related to the study of the Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism.   

The academic partners and co-founders of the Program:

Tel Aviv University (Israel)

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel)

University of Central Florida (USA)

 

The sponsor of the Program: Ukrainian-JewishEncounter.

 Who may participate in the Program?

The Program provides a possibility of learning in the field of Hebrew and Biblical studies for:

  • students of NUOA and other Universities both of Ukraine and abroad, whose major is not Hebrew;
  • anyone who wants to get basic knowledge of Hebrew and Biblical Studies.

  How does the Program work?

The Program includes three sessions: the Spring session (May 21-31), the Summer school (July 10-31), and the Fall session (November 20-30). These three sessions cover 19 courses on different philological subjects; the general number of academic credits (ECTS) is 50. However, the number of credits (ECTS) which is necessary for graduation of the Program is 21 in the standard disciplines; if a student does not have an intention to get a certificate of the entire Program and wants to take only some courses, he / she will receive a certificate of those courses which have been chosen. So a student may register only for participation in the Spring session or the Summer school, or for Spring and Fall sessions plus the Summer school, of his / her own choice.

Students who participate in the summer school may not take more than two language courses; the number of non-language courses is not limited.

Apart from the main topics in Hebrew and biblical studies, some additional courses in other Semitic languages will be offered at the Summer School (see below).

After graduation of the Program, a certificate will be issued on the authority of the National University of Ostroh Academy. This certificate allows students to continue their studies in one of the partner Universities (see above) in the field of Hebrew and Biblical studies.       

A registration fee is required. Its value depends on the session, see below.   

Accommodation. Students are provided with three meals a day, expenses on which are covered partly from the budget of the Program, and partly  from the registration fees; catering is provided by the cafeteria “VIP-Spudei” (the basement of the Old-Monastery building of the Ostroh Academy).

Accommodation is free for all participants. The lecturers will stay in the cottage Village (just behind the main building of the Ostroh Academy), the students – in the students hostel “Academichny Dim” (“Academy’s House”).   

The number of students to be enrolled is limited: no more than forty-five at the Spring and Fall sessions, no more than seventy at the Summer School. Other things being equal, participants of the previous Summer School for Semitic Philology (Ostroh, July 2016) will be the most eligible ones.
