About Brown University:

Brown University is the seventh oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of eight members of the prestigious Ivy League. Brown is known for its academic rigor rooted in its “Open Curriculum.” Brown has no distribution requirements that students must complete to graduate, which attracts self-motivated students committed to being the architects of their own education. Our students like to say that only Brown gives them the absolute freedom to study what they love, and only what they love. Students sample courses in a wide range of subjects before immersing themselves in one of 80 academic concentrations in 44 different academic areas, with the option of independent study. Brown offers unparalleled opportunities for research collaboration directly with faculty who lead in their fields. Since 1764, Brown has offered the best in educational innovation, leading-edge scholarship and research, and opportunities for community-based service learning. This has contributed to a reputation for graduating creative, entrepreneurial, socially conscious students who make an impact in their communities and the world in areas of science and engineering, the arts, policy, medicine and many other fields. The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Rhode Island’s only medical school, provides over 500 students with medical instruction and clinical training at seven Brown-affiliated hospitals in and around Providence. Among the areas in which Brown leads in research, the University continues to build on its world-class strength in the brain sciences. Neuro-engineering is an area that Brown leads in globally. In addition, other highly respected and productive branches of the university’s research enterprise include the fields of environment and society, public health, HIV, addiction research, engineering, renewable energies, biology, population sciences and human development. Students have exciting opportunities to collaborate on research with some of the top scholars in the world.
