Ph.D. in Educational Studies with Specialization in Jewish Educational Leadership


Source: Hebrew College


The PhD in Educational Studies with specialization in Jewish educational leadership, a combined program of Lesley University and Hebrew College, is designed for Jewish educators and professionals seeking to take on greater leadership responsibility in Jewish educational institutions and communal organizations. Graduates will receive a PhD in Educational Studies from Lesley University, one of the country's largest providers of graduate programs for educators, and a doctoral certificate in Jewish Educational Leadership from Hebrew College. The PhD can typically be completed in three to four years and includes 48 credits of online coursework, three 11-day summer residencies in Boston and dissertation work.

Candidates will matriculate as a cohort through both the Lesley University and Hebrew College components of the program. This is done to provide a cohesive and enriched educational experience typically not available in other online doctoral programs. Each student will be assigned a senior adviser from Lesley University and a faculty liaison from Hebrew College’s Shoolman Graduate School of Jewish Education for the duration of the program.
