Purpose

To provide Jewish educators the knowledge and skills they need for professional excellence and enhancement.  The Teacher Program allows its participants to retain their current positions while they take courses and work toward their MS in Jewish education in the evenings.

Structure

During the first year of the program, students take two classes per semester, both on the same day of the week, generally Monday or Tuesday nights (6–10 p.m.). In the second year, students take two classes per semester on one night, while every other week a night is dedicated to PEP (Professional Enhancement Practicum) seminar. Content area methods classes will be offered during the summer sessions following each year. Students are required to take 6 credits a semester for the first year (fall, spring), and 9 credits a semester in the second year (fall, spring). 30 credits - with the additional 6 credits taken online during a summer semester.
