TCLA Vision

Touro College Los Angeles is committed to being a premier institution of higher learning which serves and produces educated, self-actualized graduates who exemplify professional practice, integrity, and the values of the Touro mission in their lives

History of TCLA

Touro College Los Angeles, with separate men's and women's divisions, enrolled its first class in Fall 2005. In replicating the Touro College New York flagship model, it affords students the opportunity to combine Judaic studies with liberal arts and pre-professional courses in a supportive, Torah-observant environment. Currently, baccalaureate degree programs are offered in business management and in psychology, in addition to a Pre-Speech Therapy module and Teacher Enrichment courses. As the College advances, additional majors may be introduced. The College's Jewish atmosphere enhances Jewish identity and strengthens students' self-esteem. Since 2009, the College has provided the TCLA Israel Option program, giving students the opportunity to complete a year of intensive Jewish studies in Israel with credits counting towards their TCLA degree.


TCLA is located in West Hollywood, in the heart of sunny Los Angeles, CA. The campus is comprised of the TCLA library, computer lab, student and faculty lounges, and classrooms.
