Yeshiva University

Campus Description

Founded in 1886, Yeshiva University is America's oldest and most comprehensive institution of higher education under Jewish auspices. It is a multifaceted institution of 18 undergraduate and graduate schools, divisions, and affiliates at four New York City campuses. The University's academic programs reflect the full range of knowledge in the arts, sciences, and professions, and the rich treasures of Jewish culture and thought.

Undergraduate students at both the men's and women's campuses experience the ambiance of intimate classes, the challenges of dual curricula in diverse academic majors and Jewish studies, and opportunities beyond the University that include study in Israel and combined degree programs with other leading institutions. The cutting-edge research at the graduate schools - including the University's renowned medical college and its affiliated teaching hospitals - sets the pace for continued growth to meet the challenges of the next century.

Coordinate colleges. Graduate and first professional programs are coed.
