Brown students create programs of study that reflect their own interests, passions, and goals
A Brown education is a catalyst for creativity and entrepreneurship. Students at Brown are free to imagine and create their own core programs, integrating their major areas of interest into a broader curriculum of liberal study. Working with a network of teachers and advisors, students develop important skills of planning, communication and self-advocacy.
The College offers over 70 concentration programs that lead to the bachelor of arts or the bachelor of science degree.
Special programs include the Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME), in which selected students can proceed to earn an M.D at Brown's medical school after successful completion of the baccalaureate, and the Brown-RISD Dual Degree Program, which allows students to earn both a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of fine arts in five years.
Advisors and mentors help students navigate Brown’s vast array of academic programs and co-curricular options. In addition to co-curricular tutoring and study help centers in writing and science, all students are matched with faculty and peer advisors who provide counsel on important academic decisions.
The success of Brown’s graduates in a huge range of fields underscores that our unique approach to education works. Brown students are driven, individual, highly inquisitive scholars and energetic leaders.
