Brandeis University (pronounced /ˈbrændaɪs/) is an American private research university with a liberal arts focus.[2] It is located in the southwestern corner of Waltham, Massachusetts, nine miles (14 km) west of Boston. The University has an enrollment of approximately 3,200 undergraduate and 2,100 graduate students.[3] In 2010, it was ranked by the U.S. News and World Report as the number 34 national university in the United States.[4] Forbes listed Brandeis University as number 57 among all national universities and liberal arts colleges combined in 2010.[5]

Brandeis was founded in 1948 as a nonsectarian coeducational institution on the site of the former Middlesex University. The university is named for Louis Dembitz Brandeis (1856–1941), the first Jewish Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
