A Brandeis student conducting an experiment in a lab.

Explore computational biology; land the lead in a student theater production; study metaphysical poetry or the U.S. health care system. Or all of the above. The School of Arts and Sciences at Brandeis, the academic heart of the university, is alive with learning, teaching and scholarship.

Our approach is driven by our dual commitment to research and undergraduate liberal arts education. Whatever fields of inquiry you pursue within arts and sciences, you will work closely with other students and faculty mentors. You will have the opportunity to conduct original research and explore without boundaries. And you will join a community of learners sustained by exploration, collaboration, diversity and inclusion.
