The MA in Jewish Education provides experienced educationalists from within and outside the Jewish community with the opportunity to significantly extend their professional knowledge, understanding and expertise through sustained academic study that combines practical application and academic rigour. This award offers a unique opportunity within the UK for the study of Jewish Education to Masters level. The overarching aim of this course is to empower you through exposure to a wide range of theoretical works and research. Local, national and international research will be subjected to rigorous exploration and analysis, consistently linking to practice within your professional context. You will be expected to undertake empirical work, initially on a small scale via one of the modules. This will be further developed at the dissertation phase, where you will have the opportunity to undertake a more extended piece of empirical work. The Leo Baeck College, which provides educational services for the Reform Synagogue of Great Britain and the Union of Liberal and Progressive Synagogues, delivers the course, in partnership with colleagues from the Department of Education.
