Student ResearchFiguring out what you really want to do in life can take some research.
At Brandeis, undergraduates have the chance to work alongside faculty researchers, even a Nobel laureate. They also lead their own research projects. Our undergraduates have co-authored hundreds of peer-reviewed research articles in scientific journals and jump-started their careers in academia, industry, government and the nonprofit sector. Undergraduate Research and Creative Collaborations (URCC) in the School of Arts and Sciences developed an institution-wide portal linking programs and resources for undergraduate research and creative collaborations in the Creative Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences. Additionally, the library provides support for student research; contact a subject librarian as your entry point or for a referral with research. Experiential Learning and Teaching at Brandeis keeps a list of all courses and practica that utilize experiential learning.

If advanced study is part of your plan, here’s how we do it: through small classes, faculty mentorship, and close collaboration with fellow students and professors. And we make it financially feasible. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Brandeis International Business School and the Heller School for Social Policy and Management all offer scholarships, grants, fellowships and internships, as well as lifetime career support, to help make your professional dream a reality.
