M.S. in Artificial Intelligence Curriculum

Making the World Smarter, Safer and Healthier


In Yeshiva University’s 36-credit M.S. in Artificial Intelligence, you’ll learn by doing, using advanced techniques in AI and machine learning on industry sectors as varied as health care, biotech, finance, social media, marketing, cybersecurity and more. In class and in the studio, you’ll build AI applications, experiment with tools and work with faculty on important research. As part of the coursework, you'll complete an industry-oriented final project, and you'll be encouraged to gain hands-on experience by working in real companies through internships and independent study.  

The M.S. can be completed full time in just 21 months or part time at a pace that makes sense for you. View a typical course sequence for full-time students.
