Fast Facts

MKTYP students and alumni hold leadership positions on the University Board of Student Conduct, the African Student Organization, in the Women of Color Alliance, and in many more student organizations and university departments



The Myra Kraft TYP experience is a time of personal and academic exploration and development.  While in the program, you will be able to take advantage of:

  • An outstanding hybrid academic curriculum.  Courses designed and delivered just for students in the program provide rigorous college-level content, a small and supportive learning community, and high levels of access to instructors.

  • A highly qualified instructional staff.  Most instructors in the MKTYP are advanced doctoral students who take great care in incorporating their own knowledge into the development of courses.  Brandeis faculty members also sometimes teach in the MKTYP.

  • Strong academic support.  Each MKTYP course has a graduate student tutor.  S/he provides students with additional office hour time for support with everything from idea development to editing of final drafts.

  • Support from the entire Brandeis Community.  The MKTYP alumni community on campus, Orientation Leaders, Community Advisors, Roosevelt Fellows, faculty, and administrators work to actively support the success of students in the MKTYP. 

We are all very excited to have you as part of our community!
