Family Science B.A./Leadership in Jewish Education & Communal Service M.A.

This program is a unique opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree in Family Science and a graduate degree in Leadership in Jewish Education and Communal Service in five years.

Students enrolled in the family science major apply for admission to the B.A. to M.A leadership in Jewish education and communal service. Students in the program begin graduate coursework during their senior year by taking nine 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 you to complete both degrees in five years.

The master’s in Jewish education and communal service offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines courses in leadership, education, non-profit management, communal service, Jewish studies and an internship experience tailored to each student.
