  • Combined and Joint Programs
  • Transcending Academic Boundaries

    In conjunction with Yeshiva University’s graduate schools and other leading universities, Yeshiva College offers you the opportunity to earn a combined or joint degree in disciplines ranging from engineering 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.

    These programs are competitive, and final admission decisions are made by the cooperating institutions. To learn more, please speak with your academic adviser or contact the Academic Advising Center at 212.960.5276.
