The Joint M.A. Experience

Arianne Johnson

"Pursuing the joint degree in Music and Women's and Gender Studies helped me solidify my own interests as a scholar, while challenging me to pursue a high level of research. At Brandeis I was surrounded by supportive colleagues and outstanding faculty mentors who encouraged me to explore the intersections between both of my chosen fields on a practical level. I also greatly benefited from the intellectual resources Brandeis has to offer, as well as the nurturing learning environment."
