Education Program

Bachelor of Arts in Education Studies

Education studies at Brandeis is an interdisciplinary program through which you’ll study the social and historical contexts of education policy, human learning and development, and the role of schooling in society. As an education studies major, you will engage in pivotal issues in the field, from classroom methodology to opportunity and achievement gaps in equity and achievement.

The interdisciplinary curriculum is structured to give you the flexibility to tailor your education to your interests.

A major or minor in education studies will lay a strong foundation for a career in educational research and policy, school psychology, higher education, informal education and even museum education—not to mention graduate studies in the field.
