The Joint M.A. Experience

Amity Pauley

"The joint MA degree in Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies and Sociology at Brandeis encouraged my growth as a scholar, providing myriad and unparalleled opportunities for intellectual engagement and educational experiences, both in the classroom and beyond.

The coursework and academic atmospheres of the departments are stimulating and rigorous. Their supportive cultures fostered the creation and growth of professional relationships that contributed to my successes at Brandeis and helped me build a strong foundation for my future academic and professional achievements."
