Faculty and Research
Brandeis holds a respected place in the top tier of academic institutions in this country and the world. The university is widely recognized for the excellence of its teaching and the outstanding research of its faculty.
Brandeis’ faculty currently includes three Pulitzer Prize winners, two MacArthur Fellows, five members of the National Academy of Sciences and eight members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Undergraduate courses are taught by the same world-class scientists, scholars and artists who teach in the graduate programs and make Brandeis a leader in fields as varied as neuroscience, American history, theater arts and business.
These faculty members will know you as a person, not a number. Your professors will be able to assess your strengths (and weaknesses) and help you develop both as a student and a person. Learn more about our distinguished faculty.
Brandeis also prides itself on the opportunities available for students to conduct research and independent projects under the close guidance of faculty mentors. Many students go on to complete research projects of their own in their junior and senior year. In recent years, more than 70 Brandeis students have been first or second authors on published, faculty-reviewed work.
