Program Description:

The Graduate Center for Education at American Jewish University prepares educators to create and articulate a compelling vision for Jewish education and apply the knowledge, skills, creativity and leadership needed to bring that vision to life. Home to the Fingerhut School of Education and various continuing education initiatives for educators, we are a trans-denominational center for educational leadership training, Jewish learning, professional development and research. AJU’s Familian and Brandeis-Bardin campuses provide a natural laboratory for innovation, experimentation and integration of experiential and traditional education. Our alumni provide leadership and vision in every sector of Jewish education across the denominational spectrum. They are: * prominent leaders of day schools and supplementary schools * camp directors, environmental educators and school-based experiential education directors * award-winning day school teachers * youth directors * educators and leaders at Hillels and young adult Jewish engagement programs * Jewish Studies coordinators and curriculum writers * rabbinic educators * directors of lifelong learning, adult educators and family educators * faculty and administrators at colleges and universities * staff at museums, foundations and nonprofit organizations * mentors, consultants and master educators
