      On-Campus Information Sessions

      Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Brown School has temporarily suspended on-campus information sessions. When we have returned to in-person programming, we will update this page. In the meantime, please join us for our virtual offerings, listed below.


      Virtual Information Sessions

      Virtual Information Sessions are also hosted by the Office of Admissions & Recruitment throughout the year. Each event highlights a component of the application process or student experience and will introduce viewers to members of the Brown School community.

      Before the live event, add the event to your calendar and submit your questions in advance via the event form. You can also post questions during the session.

      After the event, archived conversations will be available on this page.

      Upcoming Virtual Info Sessions:

      December 10, 12:00-1:00 pm, CT: Graduate School During a Pandemic. Like so many communities and organizations across the globe, the Brown School has undergone a number of changes as a result of the multiple pandemics we're living through. From COVID-19 to structural racism, this year has brought to light a variety of challenges that have required us to reimagine the way we teach, learn, work and support our students --- as well as our region and the world. Join us to hear from a range of leaders and current students across the Brown School community to learn about the new systems and initiatives we created this year, and how these may inform your experience in graduate school.
