The highly regarded Master of Education (M.Ed.) helps teachers increase their earnings and earn promotions while enjoying courses that have direct application to the classroom; and the Gratz M.Ed. tuition is the most affordable in the region.
The Master’s Plus Certificate enables teachers to stay current with the latest educational trends and practices while earning professional education credits (+15, +30 and +60) and maximizing potential for continued upward mobility.
The new Master of Science in Teaching Practice promotes an advanced exploration of classroom teaching.

As with the Gratz M.Ed, the tuition is one of the most affordable in the region.
The Doctorate of Education in Leadership (Ed.D.) is for those working in or seeking leadership positions in PreK-12 Education, Higher Education, or Jewish Education.

As a teacher, my studies at Gratz provided me with the most recent information in my field to help me improve as a teacher. The impact I can pass along to my coworkers and students is priceless. As a teacher who completed my undergraduate degree nearly 30 years ago, I have gained more tools to help the children of the 21st century learn in a way that is best for their needs. I have learned more about how to best differentiate my instruction, how the brain works, and how personality affects learning. All of these tools have helped me to become a stronger educator.
