Importrant note for students of the Jewish studies BA program

SInce winter semester 2017/2018 a new version of study regulations of 2015/2016 exists - for both Jewish studies as primary or secondary subject. This change concerns the former basic module Hebrew (Basismodul Hebräisch), which since this semester is offered as Hebrew I - Modern Hebrew. This chance concerns all students of the study regulations of 2015/2016.

You don't have to re-enroll, from this winter semester on, enrollment for this module takes palce via the module Hebrew I - Modern Hebrew (Modul Hebräisch 1 - Modernes Hebräisch ) (Prüfungsnummer 296611 UEG_BA_001: Modernes Hebräisch). Link PULS

For students, who still have to take the consecutive module Hebrew - Biblical Hebrew II (Hebräisch - Biblisches Hebräisch II), because they took the basic module Hebrew last semester, they can do so both this and in the next semesterLink PULS
