NYU Wagner and the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies

NYU Wagner and NYU's Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) offer a dual-degree MPA in Public and Nonprofit Managment and Policy/MA in Hebrew and Judaic Studies . Students can complete their studies in 2.5 - 3 years and receive both degrees upon completion.

Located in the epicenter of North American Jewish communal life, students in the dual-degree program are perfectly poised to assume varying positions of professional leadership in the full range of Jewish communal organizations. Most students work part-time and intern throughout their studies, and many students begin to work full-time in their third year of the program.
