Wesleyan has an over forty-year history in sponsoring learning in this area. Courses in Jewish Studies and in Hebrew were introduced at Wesleyan in 1967.

Over the years the curriculum has grown significantly and courses are taught not only in the Religion Department, but also in a number of other departments. The Hebrew program has become especially robust with classes on all levels from Introductory Hebrew through advanced courses in Israeli literature and culture. Students interested in spending their semester abroad in Israel can enroll in one of the approved programs at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Ben-Gurion University in Be'er Sheva, and Haifa University.
