Study type Taught


With a view to nurturing future leaders in Jewish Education, Leo Baeck College has developed a new MA in Jewish Educational Leadership which has been designed to cater for both UK and European students. This is reflected both in the content of the modules which adopts a comparative and international approach and the way the content is taught. The teaching combines a few intensive seminars with on-line learning. This use of blended methods ensures that people living at a distance can study with us.

The MA will prepare and develop students who are currently working in or aspiring to leadership roles within Jewish educational settings. It will provide them with the opportunity to widen their horizons about Jewish education worldwide, to keep up to date with changing trends, contexts and issues and to analyse them. This in turn should enable students to become catalysts for positive change and development in Jewish Education. The programme has a practitioner-orientation combining a balance of education and Jewish Studies through a framework of taught modules and a research–based dissertation.

The MA is also relevant to those, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who, while not directly involved in this field, may be working more broadly in the field of religious studies.

The MA in Jewish Education will be awarded to students who have successfully completed 180 credits. 60 credits are awarded for a dissertation of 20,000 words and the remaining 120 credits are obtained through the completion of modules. There are exit points at Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma Levels.
