The Biotechnology program at Brown is extremely flexible, making it possible for students to choose exactly what they want to study in an environment conducive to learning.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2019

Overall excellent professors and a great community of students. Greatest flaw of program is lack of sufficient structure.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The major pro is that there is always help available and the professors are amazing. A major con is that the workload is rough and does not leave time for a very active social life. The other major con is the cost of the program. It is not cheap, and Providence is not very cheap either.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program will help us market globally. The educational infrastructure is formidable and Brown is known to educate a generation.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2019

This is a really great program where both the professors and fellow students want you to succeed and will do whatever they can to help make that happen.
0.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Lovely campus with very helpful staff. Lack of international outlook regarding the courses.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros:Excellent faculty, excellent support. Great campus, facilities, and city. Cons:Much more business-related than health- care related, but this is what some people want. On-campus sessions are extremely long days with no down time and very intense.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The people running the program are extremely nice and helpful in the transition into graduate school
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Brown CS has a great network for research in the New England area, including MIT, UPenn, Brandeis etc. Also the department administration works very hard to connect students to potential employers and good job/internship opportunities.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is hard, classes are difficult and students are pushed to the limit. But you learn a lot and you become a real economist.
