Brandeis combines the resources of a world-class research university with the personal attention of a liberal arts setting. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offers 17 doctoral programs and more than 40 master's and postbaccalaureate programs.
One of the key differences at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is our emphasis on interdisciplinary learning. You will learn the importance of connecting with people who have a broad range of expertise and experience.
Professional development at GSAS is for PhD and MA students in all departments and in all stages of their career. Whether you are just starting or are about to finish your degree, the resources we provide are for you. Our goal is to enable students to pursue fulfilling careers in the private sector, academia, non-profits and government.
Full-time students need to enroll or waive their insurance every year. International students are automatically enrolled. The current cost of student health insurance is $3,509 for the year (8/15/21-8/14/22). If you are looking for more information on the health insurance plan, the enrollment, and/or waiver process, please visit the UHP website. If you have further questions please contact our Budget Administrator, Lizz Kurian (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Center for Careers & Professional Development (CCPD) is the campus resource for career and professional development support for GSAS students. The CCPD provides various kinds of support for graduate students' career development goals.
