Dean's Message

Peter Weber, Dean of the Graduate SchoolPeter Weber, Dean of the Graduate School

Thank you for your interest in graduate education at Brown.

Engaging in graduate education and research is exciting. You focus on topics you find compelling, and seek answers to questions you've pondered for years.

Research is a creative process - it creates knowledge. We also look at the bigger picture, probing the importance of the discovery or analysis.  

For a decade, Brown University has invested significantly in graduate education and research. The University has expanded the faculty and recruited leaders in many fields.

Together, we are committed to educating and training a diverse body of master’s and doctoral students. We strive to make the graduate experience rewarding, and we emphasize good mentoring. Our doctoral candidates receive world-class support.

Whether you are looking at graduate schools, already headed to Brown for graduate or postdoctoral studies, or presently here on campus, I hope that you will relish the opportunity to expand your knowledge.

Best wishes,

Peter M. Weber
Dean of the Graduate School
