Gratz College offers two Fully Online Doctoral Programs: the Doctor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership and plans to launch a third doctorate in Jewish Studies soon. The Ph.D. in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is the only program of its kind in the world and is geared towards students who have graduate degrees in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, history, or another related discipline. The Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program is designed for current and aspiring pre-K-12 leaders, higher education administrators, curriculum specialists and executive directors. The new Ph.D. in Jewish Studies is designed for those students who already have a strong academic background in the field and wish to build upon that with advanced research to provide intellectual leadership for the contemporary Jewish community.
