It is my pleasure to welcome you to Genesis University. Founded in 2001, AHS – Genesis (AHS) a not-for-profit institution, was founded to help students earn a college degree conveniently and affordably through distance education, while taking into account their personal or religious sensitivities. To help facilitate this AHS – Genesis established partnerships with several regionally accredited institutions, namely Excelsior College, SUNY Empire State College, and Charter Oak State College. These partnerships provide Genesis students with the opportunity to transfer Genesis courses toward degree programs offered at each partner college. Students are required to meet a minimal residency requirement from the partner institution, in some cases this is a single course.
The initial programs offered were primarily in liberal arts with the focus in Judaic Studies and related areas. AHS-Genesis received requests from community organization, schools, and students to expand our offerings, and an education program was formally launched in 2010.
As of October 2016, students now have the opportunity to earn their degree directly from Genesis University, without the need to transfer to one of our academic partners, or in conjunction with our academic partners.
Genesis University offers distance learning courses primarily in the areas of Religious Studies (Judaic) and Education. In the area of Judaic Studies, Genesis offers a range of Judaic Studies courses, many of which may coincide with a yeshiva or seminary curriculum. Genesis works closely with students to help them earn an accredited associate or bachelor’s degree.
