Leah Spellberg, BA, 2017

Field of Study: in Hebrew and Jewish Cultural Studies and Economics

Graduation: 2017

I am a graduating senior with a double major in Near Eastern Studies and Economics. Within the Middle East Studies department I concentrated on Hebrew and Jewish Cultural Studies. This allowed me to further my Hebrew language skills, along with learning about all the cultures within the Near East and gaining a broader world view. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Israel at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, fully immersing myself in the culture and language I had been studying. Although I am still not sure of my exact plans post-graduation, I hope to use the knowledge and skills I gained while a part of the Middle East Studies department as part of my professional and personal life moving forward.
