Hebrew and Jewish Studies

      What will I study?

      Overview

      Your course structure

      The Bachelor of Arts requires the successful completion of 24 subjects (300-points), including at least one major. Most students study eight subjects each year (usually four subjects in each semester) for three years full-time, or the part-time equivalent.

      Most Arts majors require 100 points of study (usually eight subjects) for attainment. This means out of your 300-point program, you have the opportunity to achieve two majors in your course.

      COMPLETING YOUR MAJOR

      Students completing a major or minor in Hebrew and Jewish Studies will need to complete a certain distribution of compulsory and elective subjects based on their entry point. Please note that Hebrew Subjects require a placement test that will be conducted by the subject coordinator.

      BREADTH STUDIES

      Breadth is a unique feature of the Melbourne Model. It gives you the chance to explore subjects outside of arts, developing new perspectives and learning to collaborate with others who have different strengths and interests — just as you will in your future career.

      Some of our students use breadth to explore creative interests or topics they have always been curious about. Others used breadth to improve their career prospects by complementing their major with a language, communication skills or business expertise.
