Yeshiva University

Yeshiva University is a private Jewish college in New York founded in 1886. It also includes a rabbinical school.

Separate undergraduate programs for men and women combine traditional liberal arts and sciences studies with an extensive Jewish Studies program. In 2001, undergraduate enrollment was approximately 2,000. The undergraduate programs operate according to the Modern Orthodox philosophy of Torah U'Madda - torah and secular studies.

Coeducational graduate and professional programs are offered in numerous fields including medicine, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and law, at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

Rabbinic training and instruction in Jewish music are offered through Yeshiva's affiliate, the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.
