Blending research with industry-supplied projects, the Katz School of Science and Health at Yeshiva University delivers an exceptional graduate education that readies students for high-growth, high-wage jobs or future doctoral study at other top-tier universities.

The faculty, a combination of prolific scholars and accomplished practitioners, has created a cluster of interdisciplinary programs in emerging fields including:


  • Data Analytics and Visualization
  • Cybersecurity
  • Data and Privacy Law
  • Mathematics and Physics
  • Quantitative Economics
  • Quantitative Finance
  • Digital Marketing and Media
  • Biotechnology
  • Speech-Language Pathology

Students are evaluated on what they build through their research as well as their mastery of the state-of-the-art technologies, research methods and clinical practices that they will use in whatever career they pursue, whether practitioner, researcher or clinician. As a result, students graduate with a portfolio of work that demonstrates their capabilities to employers and admissions committees alike.

Students also take responsibility for co-curricular activities such as organizing school-wide colloquia, hosting guest speakers and teaching in non-credit boot camps for first-year graduate students. They also organize community-based initiatives such as running clinics in underserved areas and hosting multicultural events that bring together students from around the world.
As a complement to the School’s academics, faculty and program advisory boards work together to provide excellent professional networking opportunities. And like all Yeshiva University graduate students, they enjoy an array of resources and support services, from research and teaching assistantships, sponsored internships, merit-based scholarships and writing and research mentoring to access to practical supports such as financial aid, health and wellness, student clubs and sports.

The Katz School’s online programs are built with the same rigor and academic expectations as the on-campus programs. Students participate in the same curricular and co-curricular activities and have the opportunity to take an in-person course as a complement to their online studies and meet with faculty on campus. Similarly, online students have the same resources, support and services available to them as on-campus students.

“We are excited to offer innovative courses and top-tier degree programs, which provide students with access to industry thought leaders, expert faculty and the hands-on experience needed to acquire the skills necessary to be market-ready and excel in their chosen fields. University support for small class-sizes helps as well,” said Dr. Paul Russo, vice provost and dean of the Katz School. “Our advisory boards and adjunct faculty have been invaluable in mentoring students and connecting them with industry projects and networks of the best and brightest talent from around New York City. Students are helping to build the school, too, by taking the lead in co-curricular activities and community initiatives.”
