Columbia University has expanded its curriculum offerings in the field of modern Hebrew, it was announced here this week-end by Louis M. Hacker, dean of the School of General Studies, who reported that a gift from the Louis M. Rabinowitz Foundation has made possible the addition of courses and the inclusion of modern Hebrew as an acceptable required language in the University’s undergraduate school for adults.

The School of General Studies will offer the following undergraduate courses during the 1952-53 academic year in modern Hebrew: Elementary Modern Hebrew; Intermediate Modern Hebrew; and the Literature of Modern Hebrew.
