GPATS Placement Office


The Graduate Program in Advanced Talmud/Tanach Studies (GPATS), at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women, is a two-year masters program that provides women an opportunity for post-college, high-level study to further their growth in Torah knowledge and skills. There are two tracks within the program:

GPATS Scholars serve as powerful role models for Modern Orthodox women and are instrumental in the advancement of Torah knowledge.

The GPATS Program has recently added a Shana Gimmel (third-year) to the program and look forward to finding more opportunities for women who choose to stay for the additional years of learning and growth.

GPATS alumni are the female leaders and educators of today and tomorrow, and our mission is to create more female scholars and role models for the next generation.

While enrolled in GPATS, students engage with different groups & programs to refine their teaching and presentation skills as well as contribute to the Torah scholarship of different communities.


GPATS encourages students to pursue opportunities at synagogues, schools & other Jewish institutions.
