Hebrew Theological College's Beis Midrash Program is a serious Yeshiva College program, where its focus is to foster a love of Torah learning and enable students to advance professional goals in a framework of a Yeshiva. Students form lifelong relationships with Rabbeim and faculty, making HTC a warm and comfortable environment to grow.
The Yeshiva College is led by Rabbi Avraham Friedman, Rosh HaYeshiva and Rabbi Michael Myers, Dean. Their combined years of Yeshiva and college experience ensure a challenging academic program, in which students may succeed. All shiuirm and courses are held on campus in the classroom wing, a few feet from the Beis Midrash, and delivered by distinguished Rabbeim and faculty members from some of the most respected universities in Chicago.
All primary majors in our accredited on-campus degree program are in Judaic Studies. Options for additional majors include Accounting (with CPA Track), Business and Psychology. Students may also pursue Pre-Law, Pre- Engineering and Pre-Professional Health Studies (Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dental and Pre-Pharmacy.) HTC also has a Dual Acceptance Pharmacy Program with Midwestern University, Chicago College of Pharmacy.
Other options for majors not offered on our campus are attainable through concurrent registration with eminent universities in the Chicago area, among them Northwestern University and Loyola University. Details are available upon request.
Our Semicha Program led by Rabbi Chaim Twerski, is one of the most renowned and oldest in America. Its requirements include intense and thorough study of the Shulchan Oruch and its Meforshim, in addition to regular shiurim dealing with practical Halachic issues.
