                                  Answer:
   
   The course of study is four years. The first year is in Jerusalem, and
   involves 18 hours per week of Hebrew instruction. There are also
   classes that introduce classical texts. Students also study
   cantillation, the Jewish Choral literature, and the liturgical modes
   on which traditional Nusach is based.
   
   In years two through four, there is indepth study of the year and life
   cycle musical liturgy, as well as the history, structure, and theology
   of the liturgy. The Reform musical heritage is studied, as well as
   study of art music in Ladino, Yiddish, and Hebrew; the art and content
   of Jewish concert programming; music for all ages in the religious
   school. There is also study of Judaica: the traditional Jewish texts
   in light of the scientific investigation of modern times. There is
   study of theology: Buber, Kaplan, Heschel, Rosenzweig, and others.
   There is study of history: talmudic, medieval, or modernity. There are
   also coures in professional development: working in a professional
   setting, education principles and techniques, teaching and integration
   of music, organizing and directing volunteer choirs, the principles of
   counseling, making hospital calls, helping people with crisis. In the
   second and third years, students also have fieldwork opportunities.
