Be a student in our “Open Classroom”Our Open Classroom initiative came about during the start of the pandemic, when the Brown School wanted to offer at-home learning to those in our community, at no cost. We currently have more than 100 recorded sessions available, led by our faculty members, staff, alums and community partners on topics that bridge social work, public health and social policy–and more live sessions take place often. These courses can offer an idea of the caliber of research and commitment coming out of the Brown School community. If you want some suggestions on which ones to check out based on your career interests, contact us at

Check out our info sessions: Each year, we lead information sessions on various topics of interest to our applicants. These include introductions to all of our degree programs, funding your degree, tips for your strongest application, field education offerings, current student perspectives, living and working in St. Louis and so much more. You will find all of our past offerings here for your viewing pleasure!
