YU Graduate Schools offer new Degree and Certificate Programs in Public Health, Bioethics and Jewish Education

YU’s accomplished alumni have a growing number of opportunities to continue their professional education through new degree and certificate programs now offered at YU. Following the Sy Syms School of Business Executive MBA (EMBA) program, which welcomed an inaugural class of 15 students this past August, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Cardozo School of Law and Azrieli School of Jewish Education are all launching new programs in public health, bioethics, and Jewish education.

Students in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Center for Public Health can earn a Master of Public Health (M.P.H.), Public Health Certificate, Global Health Certificate or course credits during the Summer Institute in Global Health, an intensive research opportunity in India. The Center’s mission is to enhance the research, scholarship, and practice in public health to train the next leaders in the field. Subjects of study include behavioral and social sciences, chronic diseases, health disparities and global health.

In addition, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and Montefiore Medical Center have joined forces to offer a Master’s in Bioethics (M.B.E.) or a Certificate in Bioethics and Medical Humanities. The Einstein-Cardozo Bioethics Graduate Education programs focus on improving the practice, scholarship and education of bioethics with humane treatment and research in mind. Topics include medical research involving human subjects; the pharmaceutical industry; how religious beliefs influence healthcare; and reproductive medicine, among others.

Students who enroll in either program will benefit from the many diverse resources available to Yeshiva University institutions, such as Montefiore and other affiliated medical and academic health centers, YU schools and libraries, and community partners.
