Program description

MA Education Specializing in Jewish Education

M.A. in Jewish Education

This study program can be concentrated within a single calendar year. It is intended for educators in formal and informal frameworks who are interested in the social sciences, educational philosophy, and Jewish Studies and in exploring questions of culture and identity in educational programs.

Courses in the specialization in Jewish Education are intended to familiarize students with research in Jewish Education and to enable the clarification of the goals, methods, and challenges involved in transmitting Jewish culture and teaching Jewish subjects in Israel and the Diaspora.

This specialization provides students with the possibility for advancement in various areas of Jewish education as well as the possibility to continue in a research track. Alumni of the program can continue to central positions in educational systems in Israel and the Diaspora where they develop study plans, manage Jewish educational programs, and serve as heads of experimental school programs. Outstanding students in the program may continue toward a Ph.D. through research at the Melton Centre.

The study program is personal and combines courses that fulfill the requirements of the specialization with studies that are tailored to the needs and interests of the individual student. When the personal study plan justifies it, it is possible to include courses taught in the School of Education, the Institute of Contemporary Jewry, the Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies in the Faculty of Humanities, and in other departments of the Hebrew University.
