General Education Requirements

Brandeis students focusing on lecture

All undergraduates in the School of Arts and Sciences must, by the time they graduate, satisfactorily complete a specified set of general university courses designed to provide a broad foundation for their education.

For students who enrolled at Brandeis prior to fall 2019

Prior to fall 2019, the general university requirements comprised a program known as University Studies. All current undergraduates who entered Brandeis prior to fall 2019 will continue to follow these requirements through graduation.
