Your concentration (and overall academic program) provides broad preparation for many possible careers. While a small number of Brown concentrations are directly linked to specific career paths (e.g. Engineering), most are not. Nevertheless, Brown graduates have found that the skills and knowledge they developed at Brown have been relevant and applicable in a wide variety of work settings. Employers value the high-level writing, research, and analytic abilities required by all of the concentrations at Brown as well as specific, and/or specialized knowledge.

- Focal Point, Brown’s unique concentration search tool.
