Founded in 1928 as the undergraduate college of liberal arts and science for men of Yeshiva University, Yeshiva College embodies a unique mission: to combine Jewish learning with the study of Western and worldwide culture. Our students pursue a rigorous dual education program that combines liberal arts and sciences and preprofessional studies with the study of Torah and Jewish heritage. We provide academic majors in multiple disciplines, all leading to the BA degree. Combined and joint programs are also available with the University's graduate and professional schools as well as with other leading colleges and universities.
