Be More Than a Number
But award-winning doesn't mean inaccessible. At Brandeis, those brilliant, field-leading faculty who are shaping conversations at the frontiers of knowledge are the same ones giving lectures, grading papers and inviting you to collaborate on important research and creative projects. They'll get to know your strengths, help you grow and help guide you toward a successful and rewarding career.
Here are just some of the game-changing research projects Brandeis faculty are leading, in the lab and out in the world.
