The University of Pennsylvania

Penn has courses on the Middle East in several departments, including Jewish Studies, NELC, AMES , Art History, Political Science, History, Comparative Literature, and Sociology, among others. Remember, Penn starts a week after Bryn Mawr in the fall; a week before Bryn Mawr in the spring semester.

http://www.upenn.edu/registrar/timetable/index.html

For information about courses, look at the Web sites of the different departments.

Hebrew at Penn meets five days a week for first-, second- and third-year levels. Advanced levels, Biblical Hebrew, and Yiddish do not meet as often.

http://www.upenn.edu/registrar/timetable/jwst.html

 

In addition to language classes that meet more than three times each week, Penn offers Arabic, Persian and Turkish in more limited time frames.

(Look under NELC as well as individual languages.)
