The Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership at GW’s Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) announced the launch of its new Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a concentration in Jewish education. The program will begin Summer 2019, and interested students can apply by visiting the GW Student Portal.
The program is designed for Jewish day school educators, heads of departments, directors of congregational schools, or individuals starting their careers in Jewish education. The Mayberg Center invites interested candidates to apply for an intense and stimulating cohort learning experience in the nation’s capital. GSEHD faculty in collaboration with the Mayberg Center staff will prepare students to become teachers in formal classroom settings with an emphasis on teaching strategies, instructional techniques, and curriculum design for specific Jewish text-based disciplines.
Students will learn alongside full and part-time students studying education at GW. To earn the master’s degree, students will complete core courses in Curriculum & Instruction in a world-renowned Graduate School of Education in addition to courses particular to the concentration in Jewish education: Jewish history, rabbinics, Bible, and experiential education. These courses offer an opportunity to learn Judaic studies from recognized experts and to consider creative ways to master and to teach content knowledge. An internship at the end of the program offers a chance for candidates to teach in a supervised classroom in a Jewish school and to benefit from veteran mentors.
