How do I select Jewish Studies electives?
Students have 21 credit hours of electives in the MAJS degree. At last 15 credit hours need to be specifically connected to Jewish Studies (MJTA, ICB, or other DTS specific courses related to ministry among Jewish people). The remaining 6 credit hours of electives may be taken from MJTA, ICB, or from the following areas at DTS:
Students might consider the following questions to determine which courses will best equip them for their present ministry and future ministry contexts.
What should I do and know for my internship (INT5190)?
The internship is two-semesters and should be done in the context and incorporate activities the student anticipates doing after graduation. The internship provides an opportunity to integrate classroom learning, sharpen ministry skills, and clarify the student’s future ministry direction.
The internship requires an application in order to be registered and will take time to complete. Students are encouraged to begin this internship application before registration opens for the semester in which they would like start. If students have questions about the internship, they should contact the Ministry Formation department.

Main priorities during this time:
What is required for Graduation?
MJTA students will take courses in English with German translation provided by MJTA. The Spiritual Formation curriculum (SF5110) will be contextualized and translated into German and facilitated by a MJTA staff member. The Ministry Formation Internship material will also be translated into German.
MJTA courses are taught live (either in Berlin, Germany or in Dallas, Texas) and also are available by remote video (on Zoom or Lifesize).
All MJTA courses are cross-listed as DTS courses and fully count as DTS credit.
MJTA courses will appear on the DTS schedule page with the course code JS5***.
Ministry in Jewish Contexts
ICB will offer courses each semester with most courses in Israel available during designated DTS break (Fall-Reading Week; Spring-Spring Break). These courses will be treated as transfer credit. Each course costs $450.
The following are degree worksheets specific to students who entered the MAJS or reclassified to the MAJS in the following academic years. If students have questions about their specific degree requirements or degree audit, students should contact their academic advisor.
