Upgrade Your Career in Jewish Education!
Take your career in Jewish Education to the next level with a prestigious MA in Education, specializing in Jewish Education, from the Melton Centre for Jewish Education at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The Master’s degree blended-learning program consists of a 4-weeks intense semester in Israel and two to four semesters taught as asynchronous distance learning with some classes online taught over Zoom. This provides educators, like yourself, with the flexibility of studying and earning an MA degree specializing in Jewish and Israel Education without interrupting your work-life.
The MA Jewish Education for the different types of Jewish educators around the world
With the changing reality of Jewish life in the Diaspora, the Melton Centre at the Hebrew University is moving in new directions to adapt and to offer solutions to strengthen Jewish education in communities abroad.
This MA in Education graduate degree program is designed for educators in formal or informal frameworks. Educators interested in Jewish education and its dialogue with theory and practice in Jewish education and teaching of Jewish texts, and educational philosophy will find the curriculum inspiring and highly relevant to their field. Many of the courses are focused upon challenges and issues facing Jewish education in Diaspora communities.
The MA Education for Busy Educators
Catering to the busy schedules of students, studies will integrate on-site, distance learning, and online studies elements, where two-four semesters can be learned from the comfort of your home, and four weeks are taught on-campus for an intense summer semester in Jerusalem. While the program may be completed within one year, students may choose a lighter study load and extend studies over more distance learning semesters.
Foremost, the main advantage of this program is that Jewish educators unable to spend a long period of time in Jerusalem now can study with the Melton Centre faculty and enjoy the unique academic resources of the Hebrew University.
In addition, this MA degree in Education specializing in Jewish Education from the Hebrew University gives graduates a competitive edge in academic level and prestige.
