The Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership at GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development has established a new Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a concentration in Jewish education to begin Summer 2019. Interested students can apply by visiting the GW Student portal.
The program is designed for Jewish day school educators, heads of departments, directors of congregational schools, or individuals starting their careers in Jewish education.
Students will be among full and part-time students studying education at GW. To earn the master’s degree, students will complete core courses in Curriculum & Instruction in addition to courses particular to the concentration in Jewish education: Jewish history, rabbinics, Bible, and experiential education. These courses offer an opportunity to learn Judaic studies and to consider creative ways to master and to teach content knowledge. An internship at the end of the program offers a chance for candidates to teach in a supervised classroom in a Jewish school and to benefit from veteran mentors.
