Our Students Say

"As I progressed through the curriculum at Brandeis, my newfound knowledge was noticed and appreciated at work. My manager was surprised at my ability to clearly understand and troubleshoot technical issues that had stumped other members of our team."
- Megan Olvera, class of 2015

"Graduate school does not have to be a life-consuming event, nor should it be. There is much to be enjoyed in life, such as home-ownership, vacations, and the pursuit of personal goals. Not having to sacrifice other opportunities meant everything to me. Brandeis GPS was and is the key to this ever-important balance of life and learning."
