Advance your career.

We offer online graduate degree and certificate programs to help prepare educators to lead, transform and elevate Jewish learning for a pluralistic world.

Our programs combine academic rigor, field experience, and a network of contacts to help you land your next leadership position. Examples of our graduates' career trajectories include:

  • Part-time religious school teacher to full-time Religious School Director
  • Classroom teacher to Summer Camp Supervisor and Judaic Studies Coordinator
  • Hebrew language teacher at a Jewish day school to Hebrew Instructor at a University 


Learn on your schedule.

Our online, asynchronous programs make it easy to balance a part-time or full-time job with your studies.  For example, our pluralistic MJEd programs may be completed in two to three years as a stand-alone degree or with a specialization. Fitting it into your schedule may be easier than you think!

Learn through field experience.

Field experience is a unique and, we believe, invaluable component in our master's degree program that can reinvigorate your curricula and programming.

andrea-kasper-100px.jpg“In my experience over the years as a teacher, coach, and head of a Jewish Day School, I can attest to the value of hiring educators with a Masters in Jewish Education. Not only do teachers with a Hebrew College MJEd have a solid understanding of educational theories and practice, but they also bring with them a commitment to social justice, to building meaningful, sustainable, and loving communities of learners, and to honoring both tradition and innovation. This value-based approach to education is woven into the DNA of the MJEd program.” (Andrea Kasper, MJEd`07, Head of School at Solomon Schecter Day School of Greater Hartford, CT)
