More than 19,000 students are currently enrolled in its various schools and divisions across the country and around the world. The Touro College and University System has a long track record of offering high-quality degree programs in professional fields at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate levels in subjects such as business, law, social work, Jewish studies, technology, health science degrees, medical degrees and more.
