Welcome to Our Community of Scholars

Brandeis University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) is one of four graduate schools on campus and is situated within an exciting, multifaceted research university for scholarship, teaching and learning, just outside of the educational hub of Boston.

Our 18 doctoral programs and more than 40 master’s and postbaccalaureate programs invite interaction among disciplines, thus allowing our students to cross traditional boundaries to develop innovative methodologies, explore new theories and produce path-breaking scholarship.


Learn about our wide array of master's programs, admissions, and financial support. You can also learn more about our postbaccalaureate programs.
