The only program of its kind in the country, the Experiential Education and Jewish Cultural Arts degree will expand your knowledge and teach you pedagogical practices of an arts and culture-based approach to Jewish education. The program offers students an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines and enriches coursework from GSEHD’s Museum Education Program and the Columbian College’s master's degree in Jewish Cultural Arts. As Jewish cultural programming continues to grow, you will be equipped to assume leadership roles within Jewish community centers, YMHAs, summer camps, college campus organizations, museums and other cultural organizations.

Thanks to generous grant support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, a leader in the nation’s efforts to enhance and expand Jewish education, qualified applicants may receive up to 85% in tuition support.
