Summer Language Institute

The Summer Language Institute at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary offers students the opportunity to complete the Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced courses in Greek or Hebrew in a short-term summer class format. It also allows extension center students interested in specializing in biblical studies to take these courses that may not be offered at their extension center. These courses are required of students who hope to achieve a Specialization in Biblical Studies or Biblical Languages, and the other specializations requiring ten hours of biblical languages. It also helps fulfill prerequisites for entry into some PhD majors.
