Master of Arts in Teaching: Jewish Day Schools/DeLeT


Students in the Elementary MAT (Delet) program earn a Master of Arts in Teaching in elementary education, and are eligible for initial teaching licensure (grades 1 - 6) from the State of Massachusetts. Delet is a  personalized and inquiry-based program where students work closely with outstanding faculty and fellow students in a cohort model. Research and practice, coursework and fieldwork are closely integrated. The program is 13 months long with two summers of full time coursework at Brandeis University and a full time internship during the academic year in a local day school.

High School Programs

For those interested in teaching in a Jewish middle or high school, there are two options: choose a general studies concentration (English, History, Biology, etc.) or concentrate in teaching Tanakh/Bible. Both of these options enable students to be a part of the Delet cohort, learning with others focusing on Jewish day school education, as well as a part of the diverse and multi-disciplinary secondary cohort.

Secondary students have the opportunity to further their knowledge of their specific subject matter by taking classes in the high caliber departments at Brandeis while also learning about pedagogy and practice with Brandeis education professors and master teachers in our affiliated schools.
