Hebrew University’sMelton Centre launches Distance Learning M.A. in Jewish Education
The Melton Centre of Jewish Education (Hebrew University in Jerusalem) is launching a new distance learning Masters degree track.
Taught entirely in English, the program offers students from around the world the chance to earn a Masters degree in Jewish education in just one year of study, with a 6-week summer semester in Jerusalem.
Tailored to the needs of educators, the program allows candidates to integrate existing commitments with their degree studies without needing to relocate or interrupt their teaching. And since the program is online, participants are free to set their own schedule. Because the program is headquartered in Israel, it also offers tuition far lower than that of programs at comparable institutions in the US.
Along with two semesters of online classwork, the program includes a concentrated on-site summer semester in the Hebrew University campus in Jerusalem. This offers degree candidates the advantages of experiencing Jewish life and education in Israel’s capital without interrupting their own teaching schedules back home. In this arrangement combining the strengths of both distance learning and traditional brick-and-mortar schools, students experience both the face-to-face classwork and research with the Melton Centre as well as the flexible, educator-oriented environment of online study.
