The Biblical Languages minor, Hebrew minor or Greek minor are perfect for students who desire the opportunity to study foundational scriptural documents in ways not possible in English translation alone.
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the foundational documents for the Christian faith. While originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, they have been translated into a large number of the world’s languages. All translation involves interpretation. This is why we have numerous and diverse English translations and paraphrases of the Bible available today. The study of Scripture in its original languages helps us understand why one translation says “this” and another translation says “that.”
