Leadership in Jewish Education & Communal Service (M.A.)

Why Leadership in Jewish Education and Communal Service?

The Leadership in Jewish Education and Communal Service program prepares students for careers as professional leaders for the Jewish community with a combination of leadership training, communal service and practical field experience. Through a choice of two concentrations, Education and Communal Professional, the program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines courses in leadership, education, non-profit management, communal service, Judaic studies and an internship experience tailored to each student.

This program emphasizes the development of students’ capacities for effective communication, critical analysis, and flexible thought.  Students train for careers as educators or communal professionals in local, national and global nonprofits, service or educational organizations within the Jewish community. Examples include: the Jewish Federation, Hillel, Jewish Community Centers, social service agencies, Jewish schools, synagogues and others. Core components include five graduate Jewish studies courses, six professional courses, a supervised internship, and practicum seminar.

New in Fall 2013 is a 5 year bachelor's to master's degree program. Students enrolled in the Towson University Department of Family Studies and Community Development's Family Science major may apply for admission to this B.A. to M.A. program. Students in the program begin graduate course work during their senior year by taking 9 units of 500/600 level courses that count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Another nine units are taken during the summer terms, allowing students to complete both degrees in 5 years.
