Brandeis University

Introduction

There is no other place like Brandeis. As a medium-sized private research university with a global reach, we are dedicated to first-rate undergraduate education while making groundbreaking discoveries.

Our 235-acre campus is located in the suburbs of Boston, a global hub for higher education and innovation.

Our faculty are leaders in their fields, as passionate about teaching and mentorship as they are about pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Our students are motivated, compassionate, curious, and open to exploring new and challenging experiences.

At Brandeis, you will discover a community rooted in purpose, guided by our founding values, poised to lead in education and research in the 21st century.

Brandeis was established in 1948 by the American Jewish community at a time when Jews and other ethnic and racial minorities, and women, faced discrimination in higher education. Our visionary founders created a nonsectarian research university that welcomed talented faculty and students of all backgrounds and beliefs. From the outset, Brandeis focused on undergraduate education, while building a pioneering research enterprise.
