Foundation Courses and Certificates

MJTI's School of Jewish Studies Foundation Courses present the unique opportunity for students to take adult education level courses both on site and online. There are no prerequisites. The courses are designed to impart a general knowledge of the subject area of the topic, with student and teacher interaction. All courses require 12 class hours of instruction, readings, and a paper and/or examination. Foundation classes are taught by qualified instructors who instruct through the lens of Messianic Jewish biblical and cultural understanding. These courses do not count toward the SJS Master degree or graduate certificates.

Students may earn a Foundation Certificate in Jewish Studies by successfully completing any five Foundation courses, and an Advanced Foundation Certificate in Jewish Studies by completing ten courses. Students may also audit Foundation courses, but this will not count towards the Foundation Certificate.

Students who take only Foundation Courses are not required to apply for admission to SJS. They may simply  register for courses they wish to take, by submitting a registration form and tuition payment.
