A Center for Knowledge Creation

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Brandeis University is a center for pioneering investigation embedded in the cooperative environment of a student-centered, medium-size research university. We are driven by academic excellence, reverence for learning, and inclusivity — values of the Jewish tradition.

The smaller size of our doctoral, master's and postbaccalaureate programs enables scholars to build close relationships with our world-class faculty and conduct interdisciplinary research across traditional academic boundaries. We invite you to learn more about our community of scholars!

Our Values
