Undergraduate Admission

At Brown, you have the freedom to study what you choose and discover what you love.

Where will your Brown
education take you?

A Brown University education pushes undergraduates to be creative thinkers, intellectual risk-takers and entrepreneurial problem-solvers.

This distinctive approach demands much of students. As the architect of your education, you are responsible for your own intellectual and creative development. But you also will receive support along the way from a dedicated community of faculty, staff and peer mentors and have access to numerous resources across the University that will help you on your path.

Open Curriculum

At most universities, students must complete a set of core courses. At Brown, we invite you to develop your own personalized course of study. You’ll sample rigorous courses in a wide range of subjects before immersing yourself in one of 80+ academic concentrations (what you might call a major) for in-depth, focused study.
