Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my program is the diversity in case studies, colleagues, and course offerings. The cons are the financial hardships students must endure.

pros: good quality education. Professors really pay attention to the students. The design of the class is pretty reasonable, emphasized on varied aspects of neuroscience. cons: no choice of writing a master thesis. The program is kind of small.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Very unique school with a lot of culture and genuine individuals. Very smart individuals, great place to network and support from the community. Individuals from Brandeis are so proud to help each other because the school's culture is shared amongst everyone and is relatively new.

Degree: Liberal Studies

The benefits of the Ancient Greek and Roman Studies (AGRS) program at Brandeis are readily apparent. Our cohort is small and Masters students are the top priority of the faculty because our program does not offer PhD. There is an actively engaged environment of collaboration among students and faculty. We all want to see each other succeed. There are ample TA, research and field experiences available either directly through the program, or though the contacts of the faculty. The greatest drawback, for me, is the accessibility of outside resources. Although we are close to Boston, many possible opportunities are difficult to get to.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The second year abroad in the SID program allows for the very unique opportunity to get hands on experience. The international cohort is also unique and provides various perspectives and experiences when engaging in dialogue. Also, the small school size increases accessibility to the world renowned professors at Brandeis. There really are no cons to this great graduate program, in my opinion.

The program is terrific, but I wish that more classes were offered in the evening for non-traditional students.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Brandman University's Masters of Public Administration program is great for working professionals of all different ages. The blended program conveniently has evening classes on campus with online discussion board posts and assignments. There is a large time commitment and discipline on the student's part as the 8 week terms are accelerated pace, but you gain a sense of accomplishment very quickly.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Con: I was matched with an advisor who knew very very little on the topic that I wanted to do my Masters Thesis on. I should have been with an advisor who understood abnormal psychology or perhaps even eating disorders (topic of my thesis). I ended up doing it almost all on my own, with no input, advice, or confirmations. I did try to get a different advisor, it did not work. Most everyone else was extremely kind. Fellow students, professors, also grounds crew, the great people who made and fed us our lunches. And I cannot forget about the librarians!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The General Psychology Masters is a very intense program, but it is worth it. It gave me the opportunity to hone my research interests while still learning. I definitely feel that it boosted my chances of getting into a PhD program. A great pro is that, unlike other Master's programs, Brandeis actually gives financial aid and scholarship money, which helps keep student loan debt down. A con would be that the Boston Metro area is an expensive one to live in. Transportation costs are high, and Brandeis does not have a lot of diversity. They're working on it, but it's not there yet.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2012

Completing a Master's in Neuroscience at Brandeis University was a great experience. The faculty were extremely helpful, and I have received amazing career guidance and research experience that has enabled me to gain acceptances at many M.D. programs.
