This year we celebrate Brandeis's 50 years of educating pre-K - 12 teachers and others who care about education in our democracy.

Support the Education Program at Brandeis by contributing to the Theodore and Nancy Sizer Education Scholarship Fund which provides scholarships for Brandeis undergraduate and graduate students preparing to teach in public and Jewish day schools.

About the Education Program

The Education Program at Brandeis has two missions:

  • Preparing teachers who are reflective practitioners and who excel in the classroom
  • Studying the institution of education using scholarly tools from multiple disciplines

We are a small program in which dedicated faculty, outstanding school colleagues, and committed students work closely together.
