Graduate Certificate in Jewish Education

MTEI and the University of Cincinnati are pleased to offer a Graduate Certificate in Jewish Education. All MTEI participants have the option to apply for the Certificate Program. Once admitted to the program, MTEI seminars become part of the course plan. Additional papers and readings will be required in order to earn graduate credits. At the end of the MTEI, those enrolled in the MTEI-UC program will receive a Graduate Certificate in Jewish Education. The Certificate program is at an additional cost.

The advantages of the certificate program

“The close relationships I built with faculty and colleagues in the MTEI-UC graduate certificate program gave me the support I needed to do things I never would have thought possible before. Since participating in the program, I have written two papers for publication, presented at professional and academic conferences, and also felt empowered to make a major career change.”
