Brandeis University/Middlebury Program in Israel

Program Description

This is the first and to date, the only Hebrew language immersion program in Israel, where all course work is conducted entirely in Hebrew. The curriculum is designed for intermediate and advanced students who have completed at least four semesters of Hebrew in their home institution.
The program offers 10 weekly hours of Hebrew (equivalent to two courses) and two content-courses specifically designed for Hebrew learners. Qualified students may direct enroll in regular university courses alongside local students. Students live in dormitories with Israeli roommates, and they can benefit from the rich social and cultural campus life.
This is a full Hebrew language immersion program. All course work is conducted entirely in Hebrew, and students adhere to the Middlebury College Language Pledge.
