Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

Pros: Just about everything is pretty great. Cons: Responsible Conduct of Research was the biggest waste of time imaginable. Distance between department buildings is irritating, but the shuttle makes it a bit more manageable.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2018

The intellectual community is supportive and challenging, and the academic resources are top-notch. I have easy access to leading experts in my areas of interest, who also attract neighboring experts from surrounding universities. The department encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration and exploration, and is supportive with practical advice.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the faculty members are very supportive of their students and the program in general has a friendly environment. The cons are that as any other graduate programs, the TA load is high.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Fantastic program. But it's very small. That provides lots of possibilities for crossing subfields, but doesn't allow for the depth of larger programs.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The MPP program at Brown University is wonderful. There is no shortage of support and everyone from faculty to other students to administrative staff will put down whatever they are doing to help you succeed. A well-funded program with a light courseload complimented by a very research-focused curriculum.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2019

The stipend, graduate students, faculty are great. It would be nice if there were more scheduled times for everybody to get together and talk about philosophy.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I really appreciate the faculty and their willingness to help students achieve their goals and reach a higher understanding of a subject or topic of interest. I am disappointed that there was no half time masters degree program available.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Quick, intensive masters program with great financial aid and faculty support. I only had to take out loans to pay for housing, which was very expensive because of the city (Providence). Overall, would highly recommend.
