Azrieli-Revel Dual Degree MS/MA Program

Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies

The Azrieli-Revel Dual Degree (ARDD) program, through which students earn an MS at Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration and an MA at Revel concurrently (with some courses counting toward both degrees), is designed to provide aspiring Jewish educators with high-level professional preparation in both methods and content, by combining the discipline of pedagogy in Jewish graduate education at Azrieli with the acquisition of a level of expertise in academic Jewish studies at Revel.

The Azrieli-Revel Dual Degree (ARDD) MS-MA program provides aspiring Jewish educators with high-level training in both methods and content, by combining the traditional program of graduate study in Jewish education at Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration with the acquisition of a level of expertise in academic Jewish studies at Revel.

General Outline
The dual master’s degree retains the current requirements of both the Azrieli MS and Revel MA, including the total number of credits for each, as well as all comprehensive exams and fieldwork. By being enrolled in this program, students can count 6 credits of their required Azrieli courses toward their Revel degree, and another 6 credits of their Revel courses toward their Azrieli degree, resulting in a savings of time and tuition.

Revel Offerings

Bible

Talmud

Jewish Philosophy

Modern, Medieval, Ancient Jewish History

Azrieli requirements

Currently, the Azrieli MS requires eight core courses (24 credits), two electives (6 credits), and 6 credits of Professional Enhancement Practicum (fieldwork). Two Revel courses would count toward the fulfillment of the two required electives.

Revel requirements

The Revel MA requires a concentration in one of five fields: Bible, Talmud, Medieval Jewish History, Modern Jewish History, or Jewish Philosophy (with comprehensive exams taken at the successful conclusion of coursework). Each of these concentrations include either six or eight required courses (18 or 24 credits) in the respective discipline, with the remaining four or two courses (12 or 6 credits) to be fulfilled with electives in other fields. Students in the dual program are granted transfer credit for the following two Azrieli courses: EDU 5816 (Seminar in Contemporary Jewish Education) and JED 5070 (Promoting Jewish Values, Spirituality and Identity).

As a result of the above modifications, students complete the dual master’s program by taking 54 credits (30 credits at Azrieli, of which 6 are for fieldwork, and 24 credits at Revel) instead of 66, since 6 credits of their Azrieli coursework would count toward the Revel degree and 6 credits of their Revel coursework would count toward their Azrieli degree.

Please note that students may not switch into the dual master’s program if they have completed six courses in either school (or both).
