This program prepares professional leaders with the full complement of policy analysis and development skills, as well as specialized knowledge of Judaic studies and contemporary Jewish life. The program blends the Heller School's public policy curriculum with the Hornstein program's integrated approach to Jewish leadership training. Graduates of the dual-degree program receive two master’s degrees: a Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Leadership from the Hornstein Program and a Master of Public Policy from the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. Degree Requirements The dual Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Leadership/Master of Public Policy in Social Policy is a rigorous, interdisciplinary degree program that provides students with the skills necessary for advanced careers in the government, nonprofit, and private sectors. The dual-degree requires eighty course credits comprised of specific Hornstein courses totaling approximately thirty-six credits, and specific Heller courses totaling approximately thirty-six credits. The remaining credits are taken as electives. The program is usually completed in four and a half semesters including the summer between years one and two. Dual-degree students must meet the MPP second-year capstone requirement and will generally focus their papers on Jewish community-related policy. Capstone advisors will include the instructor of the capstone seminar and a designee from the Hornstein program.
