Curriculum

The AA in Liberal Arts offers students the best of Yeshiva University—a rigorous Jewish and liberal arts education combined with our distinctive on-campus experience. Faculty at Yeshiva University’s Katz School have designed a 60-credit program that integrates traditional liberal arts disciplines such as sociology, psychology and human resources with emerging fields, including data science and information systems. The imaginative College Experience courses will employ a project-based curriculum, where students will learn by doing. Ideas will be brought to life, using New York City as a classroom. The AA in Liberal Arts is a full-time, residential program.

Upon successful graduation, students will have a choice of pathways. If they wish to continue their education, and have proven themselves academically, students can apply for admissions to bachelor’s programs at YU and elsewhere. Students who graduate from the AA in Liberal Arts with a GPA of 3.2 or higher will have the opportunity to enroll in bachelor's programs at Stern College and Yeshiva College. Students who wish to pursue professional opportunities will be well equipped to do so.

The AS in Liberal Arts is a cohort-based program, which means that all Liberal Arts students enroll in the same courses each semester – with the exception of Jewish Studies.
