The Graduate School

The Graduate School oversees doctoral and MFA education at Brown University, preparing students for distinguished careers in research, teaching, and as experts in the public and private sectors. Doctoral students perform research at the highest level, advancing knowledge in their fields and gaining meaningful experience. The rigors of research, analysis, debate, performance, and publication prepare our graduates to help solve real-world problems at the local, national, and international level.

Brown University offers more than 50 graduate programs through the Graduate School. Brown’s collaborative culture facilitates interdisciplinary exploration and with nearly 3,000 graduate students and more than 800 full-time faculty members, Brown offers exceptionally close mentoring in its doctoral and MFA programs. 

The Graduate Program finder pages serve as the primary source of information for graduate programs. The section includes distinct pages (also contained with this Bulletin) for each program detailing application and completion requirements as well as an overview of the general application process and links to the online applications.

The Graduate School website also provides information on general rules and regulations, including links to the Graduate School Handbook, dissertation guidelines, and master's thesis guidelines. Additional regulations with regards to overall requirements and tuition regulations can also be found on the Office of the Registrar's website.
