About Brandeis University Named for the late Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis of the U.S. Supreme Court, Brandeis was founded in 1948 by members of the American Jewish community who came together to create a place for research and learning that would open its doors, without discrimination, to all who valued educational excellence. Brandeis is one of the country’s youngest private research universities and is known for its academic excellence and for combining the faculty and resources of a world-class research institution with the intimacy and personal attention of a small liberal arts college. For students, that means unsurpassed access — both in and out of the classroom — to a faculty at a nationally ranked, top-tier university renowned for groundbreaking research, scholarship, and artistic output. Brandeis supports an innovative and exciting program of learning that emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge and the solution of real-life problems. Undergraduates, from their very first year, enjoy leadership positions and research opportunities typically available only to students in their third and fourth years, and graduate students. Graduates depart to pursue careers in a wide array of fields, and advanced studies in the nation’s leading graduate and professional schools. For more information, visit Brandeis.edu
