Here’s what life is like as a Heller student:

You take classes with passionate peers who want to create social change as much as you do. You develop lifelong friendships with fellow students from all over the world and celebrate cultural diversity through food, dance and community discussion. You get the best of both worlds as you live and learn in a vibrant New England town while you’re just a quick train or car ride away from Boston and Cambridge, full of research and career opportunities.

As a Heller student, you’re part of the broader Brandeis University community. Through incredible art, athletic and spiritual activities, as well as Brandeis-wide student groups, you’ll have the opportunity to connect across campus.
