• Yeshiva College Dean Barry Eichler
  • Dean's Office: Welcome

    You are about to embark on an exciting journey in the next stage of your formal education. We at Yeshiva College are thrilled by the possibility that we may be your co-partner on this voyage toward greater intellectual growth and maturity.

    As the undergraduate college of liberal arts and sciences for men of Yeshiva University, Yeshiva College embodies a special mission: to offer a world-class, superior Jewish education combined with an equally outstanding education in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, including preprofessional studies. This dual program and our exceptional faculty—all of whom are involved in original research and writing—make the college unique among other institutions of higher learning.

    Our more than 1,200 students come to us from the world Jewish community—from North America, South America, Europe, Israel and Australia. In addition to our excellent Jewish studies and liberal arts curricula, we offer our students intensive support services for their educational, social and religious needs. Students gain leadership and interpersonal skills by participating in a variety of diverse extracurricular experiences from collegiate athletic teams and interest clubs to political action groups, student government and journalism. We also offer extraordinary summer travel courses in Japan, France, Italy, Spain, Israel and destinations yet to be imagined.

    We take pride in preparing our students to think critically and analytically and to become citizens of the world while being well-grounded in our Jewish cultural heritage—its law, religious practice, sacred texts, history and philosophy. If you are seeking intellectually rigorous experiences combined with exciting research opportunities, and if you are eager to take your place alongside tomorrow's leaders, then we welcome you to learn more about Yeshiva College and to consider becoming a member of our vibrant community.
