What Makes Us Special

About Brown University

Brown University is known for academic rigor rooted in its “Open Curriculum.” Undergraduates have no core distribution requirements that students must complete to graduate, which attracts self-motivated students committed to being the architects of their own education. Students sample courses in a wide range of subjects before immersing themselves in one of 80 academic concentrations, with the option of independent study. Brown offers unparalleled opportunities for research collaboration with faculty who lead in their fields.
