Spertus Institute launches Mountain-Southwest regional cohort of its MA in Jewish Professional Studies

Spertus Institute’s MA in Jewish Professional Studies (MAJPS) is a career-boosting graduate program that advances the professional skills and Jewish knowledge of those working for and with the Jewish community.

Over the past decade, the program has been tailored to serve Jewish communities in Canada, Israel, and several regions of the United States. A Mountain-Southwest Regional Cohort of the MAJPS program will begin in June 2019, specifically for employees of Jewish organizations in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.

Applications are now being accepted. Fellowships are available to cover up to 60% of costs for qualified students admitted by March 31, 2019.

The program is geared toward busy, working adults. Courses are taught by distinguished faculty with real-world expertise, through onsite seminars at the Spertus Institute campus in Chicago, online coursework, a yearlong professional mentorship, and a personalized capstone project. The emphasis is on material that is immediately applicable to students’ careers.

Students participate in the program with a cohort of fellow professionals, building a network of partners and colleagues. The program can be completed in just over two years.

Those interested in the program – for themselves or members of their staff – should contact Spertus Institute Director of Enrollment Anita Silvert at asilvert@spertus.edu. More about the program can be found online at spertus.edu/Mountain-Southwest.
