Letter from the Director

Anne Marando Executive DirectorWelcome to Graduate Professional Studies!

Brandeis University’s Division of Graduate Professional Studies provides a Brandeis University academic experience to working professionals, with part-time applied master’s programs available online.

As you explore our website, you will discover our defining principles:

  • Small class sizes, with 12:1 student-to-instructor ratio
  • Quality standards for online course development and delivery
  • Personalized student services
  • Instructors who are leading professionals in their fields, dedicated to teaching
  • Collaborative learning among students and their instructor
  • Diverse and emerging fields of study
  • Flexible registration and admissions options

Our programs are geared for professionals looking to advance in their fields and keep up-to-date on the latest practices. We strive to teach techniques that our students can apply immediately in their places of work. Our instructors bring their applied experiences into the online classrooms, and our professional advisory boards help ensure that our courses and programs remain current and relevant.

Our offerings are designed to be accessible to adults tasked with balancing personal, professional, and academic responsibilities.

  • Students may take up to two courses before applying for admission to a program.
  • Courses are structured into three 10-week terms that begin in September, January, and May.
  • We have rolling admissions, reviewing applications for admission as they are received.
  • We provide flexible pacing options, with the ability for students to complete the degree in time frames ranging from 5 to 15 terms (1.7 to 5 years).
  • While they follow a defined pace from week to week, our courses have no set day or time for interaction, allowing students to perform coursework at a time and place that works best for them.

Brandeisian to the core, we care about our students, their professional development at the graduate level, and their advancement. Our well-focused, professional master's programs are designed to be as accessible and practical as possible. I invite you to explore this website and to contact our office in any of several ways, so that we may assist you in deciding whether Brandeis is for you.
