Celebrating global perspectives through immersive experiences.

Brown University’s global programs offer Brown and visiting students opportunities for immersive experiences around the world and integration into diverse academic settings, while challenging students to gain new perspectives in an ever-changing world. Many students who participate in Brown’s global programs develop new academic interests, enhance their language and intercultural skills, and bring a renewed focus to their studies and their lives.

Semester Programs

Brown University administers a number of study abroad centers around the world.

These programs are focused on immersive experiences that allow students to pursue their academic interests while learning from faculty and students at host universities and study centers. Each center is supported by on-site staff, who provide student support, advising, and organize cultural and experiential activities for students on-site. 

The Brown in France Paris program offers direct enrollment at the University of Paris for upper-level students of French in a broad range of disciplines.
