M.A.-Education and Jewish Studies
Dual M.A.-Education and Jewish Studies/Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Ph.D.-Education and Jewish Studies
We offer three graduate programs in Education and Jewish Studies that prepare teachers, practitioners, researchers, and aspiring administrators for leadership positions in a wide range of Jewish educational settings including schools, informal education programs, community organizations and other non-profits, curriculum agencies, museums, and foundations.
The 38-credit M.A. program in Education and Jewish Studies provides students with a core of academic, research, and cohort experiences in education, Jewish education, and Judaic studies. Students select from the following three areas of study: Teaching and Learning, Leadership and Administration, Foundations of Education, or Applied Psychology.
The 58-credit Dual M.A. program in Education and Jewish Studies/Hebrew and Judaic Studies, offered jointly with the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies in the NYU Graduate School of Arts and Science, provides additional studies in Jewish history, language, and culture, and is designed so that students obtain both degrees concurrently.
The 78-credit Ph.D. program prepares three groups of potential leaders in Jewish education: Educational Administration and Policymaking; Curriculum Research and Development; and Academic Research. Established in 2001, the Ph.D. program is the first of its kind to be offered at a major research university in the United States.
All three programs are tailored to students' individual needs and interests. Close and personalized mentoring is provided by faculty as well as expert practitioners in the field of Jewish education working in the New York City area. There are generous funding opportunities available.
