Undergraduate Torah Studies

Education Built upon Relationships for Life


A message from the Dean

Dear Talmid or Future Talmid,

Undergraduate Torah Studies is blessed to have unparalleled Roshei Yeshiva and rebbeim of the highest caliber, along with a tremendous chevra of talmidim. Yeshiva University prides itself on our rich history of Torah excellence, middos tovos, and menschlichkeit. Our success in developing outstanding talmidim results from treating each talmid as family. Joining the YU family means you are surrounded by people who are here to guide you, encourage you, champion your successes, and support you through the challenges.

UTS serves our student body in three distinct ways:

► Torah Shiurim and Learning

► Spiritual Guidance

►Engaging Programming

With four distinct yet united programs and 50 Rebbeim, UTS is sure to have a learning program that meets your needs and interest. Whether you are a mature learner and looking forward to spending many hours a day in the Beis, or just beginning your journey of discovering our rich heritage and texts – or anything in between – we have a program and shiur that will engage you intellectually and inspire you spiritually.

I look forward to greeting you at this year’s Orientation which will take place from Wednesday, August 23rd - Sunday, August 27th – to get to know you and to tell you more about what UTS has in store for you!
