General Course of Study
On its own, the NPL is a ten course unit (CU) degree, consisting of four NPL core CUs, four NPL elective CUs, and two Penn elective CUs. On its own, the MA in Hebrew Letters is a five year program including two Foundational Years and three Integration Years including a year of study in Israel. When students complete the NPL/MA in Hebrew Letters program, two RRC CUs are applied to the NPL program as electives, allowing students to complete both programs together in five to six years. It is recommended that students begin the MA in Hebrew Letters program at RRC prior to applying to the NPL program at the University of Pennsylvania. Students must notify their academic advisors at both Penn and RRC that they are completing this program, so that their course of study can be planned accordingly.
