Kyle Rempfer | The Diamondback

"The University of Maryland's language school approved a Hebrew Studies minor this fall.

Before, students could take Hebrew classes, but there was no official degree program available, said Avital Karpman, director of this university's Hebrew program. The minor will go into effect spring 2018.

'We're really excited about it. We have a really rich and diverse Hebrew department … and sequence of courses,' Karpman said. 'Many of our students were taking upper level Hebrew courses anyway, and not getting any formal recognition for their effort, so we're really excited to put everything together and put together a minor.'"
