The Masters' Programs in Education and Jewish Studies at NYU Steinhardt are designed to enhance the skills and provide training to teachers and aspiring administrators in Jewish educational settings.

 

While providing a core of academic, research, and cohort experiences in education, Jewish education, and Judaic studies, the program is also tailored to its students' individual needs and interests. Close and personalized mentoring is provided by faculty from the School of Education and the Skirball Department, as well as by expert practitioners in the field of Jewish education working in the New York City area.

 

Career Options:
Program graduates may teach in Jewish educational settings, formal and informal. These settings may include day schools, supplementary schools, and camps. Graduates may find employment in bureaus of Jewish education, associations that promote Jewish education, Hillels and other college-level student service organizations, and publishing houses that specialize in Jewish educational materials.
