THE World ranking

Brandeis University was founded 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. Brandeis? visionary founders established a non-sectarian 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.

A Brandeis education is a vigorous exploration in critical analysis, creativity and self-expression. The faculty combine innovative teaching with ground-breaking research and scholarship. Students immerse themselves in the liberal arts and sciences, and engage in research that excites them, with faculty leaders in their fields. Brandeis students may choose from a variety of majors in four broad areas: the creative arts, the humanities, the sciences and the social sciences. University also offers a variety of master?s & doctoral degree programs that encourage innovative, exciting new projects of interdisciplinary research and teaching. With an emphasis on small classes and faculty mentorship, it offers students the opportunity to work closely with their distinguished senior scholars.

Free pizza at midnight during finals. Bubble soccer. Organic vegetables from our rooftop farm. Clubs that range from a cappella groups to skydiving. Student?s at the university can find their passion or can create it. Brandeis has more than 260 student-run clubs and organizations, including service organizations, cultural awareness groups, performing groups, spiritual and religious groups, sports and games clubs, student leadership and activism groups, student publications, a television station (BTV) and a radio station (WBRS).

The university encourages and supports all expressions of spiritual and religious life on campus. Brandeis offers a rich diversity of programming, groups and opportunities for academic study. There are more than 20 student groups focusing on religion and spirituality. Faculty teach about a range of religious traditions in courses through a broad span of departments and programs. Chaplains and advisers from a variety of backgrounds serve the Brandeis community.

The Brandeis campus is abuzz most days and evenings with events, performances, film screenings, guest speakers, sporting events, club meetings and other activities. It?s truly an amazing place. The historic city of Waltham has a population 60,000 and offers a wide array of restaurants, shops, and theaters to suit any taste. Downtown Waltham is just a 20-minute walk from campus or a quick trip on the university shuttle.
