Doctorate of Education in Jewish Education Program


Source: Davidson Graduate School


The William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education is offering an EdD in Jewish Education. The doctoral program is designed to prepare academics and senior professionals for the growing educational needs of North American Jewish communities.


The program offers two areas of concentration:

  1. teaching and learning;
  2. leadership and administration.

In so doing, it prepares students for the practical work in administration, supervision, curriculum development, and educational research, and for academic careers in the field of Jewish education.


The doctoral program requires 63 credits beyond the master's degree. Students accepted to the doctoral program must possess substantial graduate-level knowledge in both education and Judaica.


As a rule, students will not be considered for admission to the doctoral program in Jewish education unless they have had a minimum of four years of full-time experience working in the field of Jewish education.


Students may enroll in the Doctoral program as full-time, part-time or executive students.

Full-time doctoral students are eligible for generous full-tuition merit fellowships and living stipends.
