  • About

    The Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies offers the joint Bachelor of Arts/Master of Arts degree to enable superior undergraduate students at Yeshiva University to begin their studies for the MA degree. To be admitted to the program, students must have senior standing. They may take up to 12 graduate credits (four courses), but not more than 6 credits (two courses) per semester, during their final year in college. These credits may be counted toward both the BA and the MA.


    Classes may be taken in the fall, spring and summer semesters. During the regular academic year, classes meet weekly for 15 weeks and are scheduled at 3, 5 and 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and occasionally on Friday morning. Summer courses, which are available under the aegis of the Harry Fischel School for Jewish Studies, meet in the morning and evening three times a week for five weeks.
