Courses in the Hebrew language have been offered at Queen's since the University held its first classes in 1842. They were a central part of the University's curriculum during its early decades, when a large percentage of Queen's students studied theology and required knowledge of Hebrew for biblical studies.Since 1912, Queen’s has offered one introductory and one advanced course in the language, both to students at the Theological College and students in the Faculty of Arts and Science.

Currently, the Hebrew Program offers language acquisition as well as literature and culture courses in modern Hebrew. The courses offered change from year to year
