Hebrew Courses in the University of Illinois
The University of Illinois offers credit hours of Hebrew classes. Starting with Elementary Modern Hebrew (HEBR 201 and HEBR 202), through Intermediate Modern Hebrew (HEBR 402 and 403), to Advanced Modern Hebrew (HEBR 404 and 405).
The courses are being taught through the Program in Jewish Culture and Society. To get more information about the courses and requirements press here.
Every so often, Yiddish courses are offered through UIUC, but check with the course catalog and/or adviser to see when the courses will be offered.
Students who attend or transfer to the University of Illinois with high level of Hebrew may take a Proficiency exam and be placed in a higher Hebrew level. Passing the higher level Hebrew class will enable the student to receive credit for that class as well as the classes the student was found proficient in. Get more information about who to contact in order to take proficiency exam here.
