Students at the Georgia Institute of Technology can now enroll in elementary Hebrew, a Northwest Semitic language native to Israel. In 2013, Modern Hebrew was spoken by over nine million people worldwide. Historically, it is regarded as the language of the Israelites and their ancestors. The School of Modern Languages’ Hebrew program was launched in Fall 2020, and classes are taught by faculty of Georgia Tech’s School of Modern Languages.

The offerings are part of the universities’ partnership in the Atlanta Global Studies Center, funded through a $2.25 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Students attending colleges and universities affiliated with the Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE) may join Georgia Tech students in taking the new classes through the council’s cross-registration program. Students at other institutions should check with their school’s registration office for details. Students will attend classes in state-of-the-art classrooms equipped with videoconferencing technology, making them accessible to registered students on other campuses.
