An ideal combination for students who think of pursuing a career in the nonprofit sector or in the Jewish community: a Master’s in Jewish Studies and a certificate in nonprofit management from IU’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
Students interested in combining an M.A. in Jewish Studies and a certificate in nonprofit management need to apply separately to both the Jewish Studies Program and to SPEA.
