The M.A. in Education, Masters Blended Program specializing in Jewish Education is based on guided study and on group work, within supportive frameworks created by the lecturers. Studies take place on a Hebrew University online platform designed for distance learning. Each week, throughout the semester, a lesson is uploaded to the website and students are required to view the lesson, complete relevant readings, participate in discussions and submit assignments for each lesson. At the end of the semester students must submit a final assignment for each course. Distance-learning courses include some synchronous classes to be taught by ZOOM.
All the lectures and course materials are in English. Assignments and contributions to forum discussions must be written in English. A high level of English proficiency is therefore a requirement for participation.
According to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), online courses of four credits require 120 study hours per semester. Our program requires on average four to six study hours per week for each course over a period of 14 weeks, including reading, assignments, participation, etc. Additionally, each final assignment requires 40 to 50 hours.
