Student & Graduate Reviews

4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is interesting; producing change maker around the world. Growing up as a child in Africa, I have always been interested in the fight for social justice, peace and gender equality. I am from a country in Africa that fought 14yrs of civil war that lend to extreme poverty. Through my professional and life experience I realize that poverty was a man made problem that could be solve gradually. The program at Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University is giving knowledge on how to help solve some of those problems that the poor are faced with around the world. Even though the workload is heavy but I take it as a challenge.

The Physics Department is small, but close knit with a great group of professors in both biophysics theory and experiment (active systems) and high energy theory and experiment. The biophysics program has collaborative research in theory, computation and experiment and that is what drew me here, and the reason I am glad of my choice.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The Heller School for Social Policy and Management is an excellent graduate program if you are looking for relevant and interesting classes, combined with a diverse student body. A general class on economics is enhanced when students represent over 6-10 different countries within the classroom and can speak to the topics with real life experience. The professors are excellent, with field experience from top organizations that development practitioners hope to work with post-graduation.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

Brandeis has a very diverse community and has a very immerse culture and does well to let those around you to experience it. The program itself has high standards, as it should, and expects a lot of student. However, some of the required aspects of the the program have not been properly tuned for the benefit of the students quite yet and so the experience feels rather rough.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2013

The community is what makes the program - all of the professors and program directors are incredibly supportive and readily accessible to provide additional help and guidance. The cohort of students is incredibly altruistic, optimistic and ambitious, and make you feel like you're part of a family.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I have not regretted enrolling in t he International Business School at Brandeis University. The opportunities available to me here are innumerable. I am guaranteed of a solid future as a result of the strong network connections, the quality academic experience and the uniqueness that comes with a liberal arts education here. Icing on the cake is the 5-year dual-degree program that allows me to obtain a bachelor's and master's degree in economics at one of the best graduate institutions for business in the country.
