Our Program

Gratz College strengthens communities by educating leaders through affordable and flexible online programs, designed for the working professional.

"Preserving our legacy, leading into the future"

Gratz College has a long history of educational service. Over the last 125 years, Gratz has evolved into a cutting edge institution that provides affordable and flexible online graduate programs to students of all backgrounds from across the United States. An early adopter of online education, Gratz offers blended and fully online degrees and has enrolled students from 36 states and 6 countries. 

The M.S. in Nonprofit Management (MSNPM) was born from our M.A. in Jewish Communal Service program when it was obvious that there was a need for a more secular degree in our increasingly interconnected world. The Gratz MSNPM stands out for the applied nature of its courses. The program is designed for students working in nonprofits, and each assignment allows students to build and create something that is applicable at their place of employment.

Since all classes are online, Gratz is able to attract professors who are out in their communities leading successful nonprofits. Who better to learn fundraising from than the woman credited with saving the Philadelphia Orchestra? However, being online does not take away personal interactions. When learning about Nonprofit Law, you can rest assured that your professor will want to know where you are from so that the class can be tailored toward your own state's laws.
