Brandeis Precollege Online Program

High School students have a special place at Brandeis University. We've created a Precollege Online Program that enables high schoolers age 13 and up to explore subjects they may wish to pursue in college. Currently we offer: Civil Litigation, Climate Change, Global Health and Women’s Health. Each course is taught by Brandeis faculty through video lectures and supplemented by live sessions with university mentors. The program is available year-round, and the online format lets students study anywhere, anytime at their own pace.
