Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

It's a small program, so everyone is well connected. Faculty and staff are nice and easily accessible. The area is also very nice to live.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Brown CS is a small but very focused program. Faculties and the department itself are very committed to not only achieving excellence in their research, but also teaching and advising their graduate students.

My graduate program is intensive and rigorous, but provides an excellent network of support and assistance both from faculty and other students as well. The short time frame means a greater amount of work than most comparable graduate schools, but I believe that Brown's program is exceptional in its ability to combine practical and theoretical applications of learning. It is rather expensive to live in Providence, but that does not take away from the accessibility of the area.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I came to the Brown University School of Public Health for the concentration in Global Health. From the moment i submitted my acceptance for admission, I have been supported by my advisor and had many doors opened for me in pursuing my career.

I am in the Masters of Arts in Teaching, which allows students to get certified as a teacher while also continuing study in their fields (English, Social Studies or Science). The program is difficult and, since it is only one-year, it is a big commitment and a busy time. But the support and personalization of the program is unparalleled. We get to know our faculty directors and professors well, which means we have strong allies when job search time comes around. The program is divided into three parts. Summer is the hardest because we jump almost immediately into teaching--but this experience is really valuable, especially because of the amount of feedback from mentor teachers and professors. During the "academic semester," MAT students have a lot of freedom to take classes throughout Brown in their fields. I was glad of the opportunity to take English classes while working for my certification. Then student teaching takes up one semester. We are personally paired with mentors and usually get a lot of independence in planning and running our classes.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

As a minority, I love how diverse the campus is. It is quite different from my alma mater. Faculty and Staff are extremely friendly and supporting. They reach out in multiple ways and always find a way to make students feel at ease. The workload is hectic sometimes yet manageable. I love how professors at Brown, unlike other institutions, understand we have other coursework and life responsibilities. They become easy going with their class requirements because of this. I have recommended several of my friends to pursue a graduate education at Brown based off of my positive experiances!! The only con is the lack of financial aid for Masters students. Hopefully that will improve.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is small and therefore doctoral students get a lot of individual attention. However, since it is small, it does not have the same access to resources and networks as more prominent public health schools.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

This is my first semester and I have been enjoying it so far, but the core classes required haven't been as beneficial as I was hoping because of how specific my goals are. I do look forward to my electives and actual track completely.

I absolutely loved my experiences at Brown University! I would love the opportunity to continue on for my PhD.

Brown is an Ivy League School in a small city. Lift quality is good while academic environment is good, too.
