Special Announcement About the Mentoring Component of Spertus College’s Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies Program

Spertus College offers a Master of Arts in Jewish Professional Studies which includes a mentoring component in its program. Throughout his/her studies, each student in this program is given a personal mentor. The mentor meets with the student on a regular basis (every 2 to 3 weeks). The nature of the role served by the mentor will vary from student to student. Some students may choose a reflective practitioner from their field with whom they will regularly discuss the applicability of course materials to practical work. Others may choose to create a more formalized independent study framework with their mentor, based on readings and writing. Still others may choose a mentor with whom they work on a specific profession-based issue over a sustained period of time. Finally, some students may choose a mentor who serves as a personal coach. The program advisor will work with each student in identifying an appropriate mentor and crafting the nature of the work the mentor will do with the student.
