To prepare highly qualified educators for teaching positions in Jewish day schools and yeshivot.
This program is geared toward those entering the field of formal Jewish education. Career changers or those who have prior teaching experience can participate in this full-time program, but must do so to the exclusion of employment.
This cohort-based program is designed to be completed over the course of one academic year, beginning in the fall and concluding at the end of the summer, and requires a full-time commitment. Candidates should be available to take courses during the day and on occasional evenings, as well as be available throughout the year for full-time student teaching placements. Course sequence and schedule structure during the first two semesters is fixed. In the final summer semester, students take two content area methods classes of their choice. Upon completion, students receive a Master of Science (MS) degree.
