Learn to initiate, facilitate, and sustain improvement in Jewish institutions.
At Lesley, our goal is to inspire imagination, courage, and persistence to improve teaching, learning, and leading.
Here, you'll gain new insights into the role of education in a democratic society and schools as systems. Examine the forces that shape institutional conditions, and the factors that influence how leaders function. Study models of institutional change and how technology can be used for innovation. Take courses in qualitative and quantitative research methods that will prepare you to write your dissertation. You'll grow as a leader with vision, and gain skills to put your vision into action.
This program is a collaboration between Lesley and Hebrew College. You'll take 15 credits of courses through Hebrew College and transfer them into the 33-credit Lesley doctoral program. When you finish both programs, you'll have a Doctoral Certificate in Jewish Educational Leadership from Hebrew College and a PhD in Jewish Educational Leadership from Lesley.
This program is appropriate for Jewish educators and professionals at day schools, colleges, universities, or nonprofits; rabbis, cantors, and other congregational leaders; and educators who wish to transition into a new Jewish educational leadership role.
