Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

There is a lot of support for the graduate students in this program--it's a rigorous program, but not cut-throat at all, really friendly.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

They offer NO financial aid for Masters students. The work load is average for colleges but the teachers are very good. Most of the students are from India or China so thats the extent of the diversity. Grading is fair for the courses and I've learned a lot since I've been here. Overall Great school and great surroundings.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The Brown Trinity Masters of Fine Arts Program in Acting is one of the top and most competitive in its field. The program focuses on creating well rounded artists that graduate ready for the professional acting world, as well as experience in directing and play-writing. Students are guaranteed acting opportunities on the Trinity Rep stage, competitive financial aid packages, and a faculty that believes in providing significant one on one support to help each actor grow within the program. The workload is very intense. With 12 different classes taking place over a 6 day work week, students are constantly working. The Providence community has very little distractions a large city would create which helps students focus. Also, as a MFA program that is affiliated with a major ivy league university, students have incredible amounts of resources that are available to them, including networking opportunities. Overall, the Brown/Trinity MFA Acting Program is an incredibly demanding 3 years that gives its students all the tools/experience they need to succeed in their field.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a very cooperative school and the professors are very inviting and open. Further, many have been around long enough to have erected pillars of support and an academic family around them - great network, and great opportunities.

The history PhD program is both rewarding and challenging. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to put in the work.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

Graduate school provides pretty generous funding, which allows one to live comfortably by humble student living standards. It would too tight for two people, but covers all the necessities (accomodation, food, some books) of one person. My program has some great faculty members, not all of whom are available whenever graduate students would like to be available, but they're good lecturers and good resource. The student body is pretty diverse in the program, we have students from various parts of the world doing different types of research, from demographic studies to qualitative ethnographic projects. I've made some good friends while studying here, and miss those who have already left.

No efforts made and resources spent on providing students with information on non-academic career options. No support for acquisition of research data which is not publically available.
