Chinuch Track

B.A., M.A., and semicha in five years.

Eligible students may earn a B.A. in Psychology, an M.A. in Jewish Studies with a Concentration in Jewish Education, and in as little as five years, following completion of shana bet in Israel.

You'll learn under talmidei chachamim with a world-wide reputation in a dynamic beis medrash and from accomplished undergraduate and graduate faculty, supportive of the values of a ben Torah. You'll gain practical classroom experience as part of the graduate program and we offer active placement services once you graduate.

Nine graduate credits count towards the bachelors degree as well, expediting completion of the program, and graduate classes are typically offered at the LCM campus after second seder.
