Semester at List College Program

The Semester at List College Program in Jewish studies gives undergraduate students currently enrolled at other accredited four-year colleges and universities the opportunity to study for one or two semesters at Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies. Applications for the spring 2016 semester will be accepted beginning August 1, 2015. 

You will be able to:

  • Choose from a rich selection of Jewish studies classes
  • Reap all of the benefits of being in a dynamic urban setting, including internships and cocurricular activities
  • Take courses in classical Jewish texts, history, literature, thought, and more
  • Learn from our passionate faculty, and form close friendships with students from List College and JTS's four graduate-level schools
  • Take advantage of residence-hall living, and participate in a variety of cocurricular activities.

A visiting student may receive credits at his or her own institution for courses successfully completed at List College, subject to the approval of the student's own dean. Visiting students are assigned an advisor to assist with navigating registration procedures and to act as a general resource during their stay at List College. We also assign housing for those who wish to live on campus during their time as visiting students.
