Association for Hebraic Studies Institute
The Association for Hebraic Studies Institute, an NCCRS member since 2005, was founded in 2000 to provide students with coursework in Hebraic/Judaic studies in a classroom format or through distance learning or proficiency examinations.
The curriculum is designed to give students both a broad and in-depth view in areas of Judaic studies. Theoretical and practical applications are stressed and emphasis is placed on using the traditional and contemporary texts and original sources. The curriculum is designed to articulate with degree programs offered at regionally accredited colleges and universities. Students have the opportunity to earn a regionally accredited degree at Charter Oak State College by combining AHS courses, traditional and distance learning college courses, and approved college level exams.
Traditional Jewish religious colleges, in cooperation with the Association for Hebraic Studies Institute, can use the AHS curriculum under the auspices of the Association for Hebraic Studies Institute. In this way, students of these religious educational institutions can benefit from the credit recommendations established by NCCRS for the AHS learning experiences.Official transcripts documenting the successful completion of AHS learning experiences are sent directly from the AHS Registrar's office.
