The strongest advocates for a Brown education are our students themselves.

With innovative, student-centered learning experience, our professional education programs are designed to break down silos and integrate a diversity of perspectives to bring new ideas forward.

Our admission process challenges us to discover how each applicant would contribute to — and benefit from — Brown's diverse and collaborative culture. Taking a holistic look at each application, we will consider your unique talents, accomplishments, energy, curiosity, perspective and identity. If you are drawn to our program, we strongly encourage you to apply. We look forward to getting to know you.

    Our soon-to-be graduates have worked incredibly hard to get to this moment. While we may be apart, and experiencing this important milestone in ways none of us expected, we at Brown are excited to host three separate Virtual Degree Conferral Ceremonies to commend our graduates on their tremendous achievements.

    We will celebrate this important milestone with the Brown community around the world — virtually, for now, and together again on campus at Commencement next spring.

    You can access the ceremonies online on Sunday, May 24, starting at 1 p.m. EDT. They will feature remarks from University leaders and graduates, the virtual conferral of degrees, and an opportunity to sing the alma mater in unison, wherever we may be.
