Undergraduate Jewish Studies
Yeshiva University attracts women who want to develop their entire being—whose idea of success includes professional fulfillment, strong family and rich spiritual life.
Stern College for Women's Rebecca Ivry Department of Jewish Studies offers the country's largest and most diverse undergraduate Jewish studies program for women. Designed to expose students to the beauty of Torah study and the depth of Jewish tradition, the program offers valuable training in rigorous thought, exposure to research methods and opportunities for independent work. It empowers them to become dynamic participants in Jewish life and to pursue careers in Jewish education.
The Mechinah Pathways Program within the Rebecca Ivry Department of Jewish Studies is designed for students new to Hebrew language and textual study, who aspire to attain a broad-based Jewish philosophical and text-based education.
Combined and Joint Programs
In conjunction with Yeshiva University's graduate schools and other leading universities, Stern College offers you the opportunity to earn a combined or joint degree in disciplines ranging from business administration and social work to Jewish education and Jewish studies. This wealth of programs affords you educational experiences that would not be possible within the bounds of single disciplines.
Stern College for Women offers a unique and challenging Graduate Program of Advanced Talmudic Studies, which leads to a master's degree in biblical and Talmudic interpretation. It is open to students with extensive backgrounds in advanced Jewish studies.
