Did you know?

Graduate students have been a part of the university almost since its inception.

Graduate students were admitted in fall 1953 and several of them pursued one of our first graduate degrees in music composition. Early faculty of the Brandeis School of Music included Erwin Bodky, Irving Fine, Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.

By the end of Brandeis' first decade, 12 graduate programs had been established.
