The Department of Hebrew & Semitic Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison teaches Hebrew as a classical and living language and provides the opportunity to study the literature and thought of the cultures based on that language, including biblical Israel, rabbinic and medieval Judaism, and modern Israel. Courses are also offered in areas of study cognate to the above: Semitic languages, archaeology, and Jewish cultural history. Advanced courses teach the methodology of scholarly investigation.
