Independent Concentrations

Welcome!

If you're interested in an Independent Concentration, this is a good place to learn more. Use the links on the left to explore what an IC is, how to create, how the approval process works, and who the current ICers are.

IC Coordinators are here to help you at each stage of the process. Whether you're deciding whether an IC is a good fit for you or preparing to submit your application, we're here for you! Coordinators hold open hours every week, though hours may vary during shopping, reading, and finals periods.

Our Spring 2019 open hours are: Mondays 10am-6pm, Tuesdays 1pm-2:30pm and 4pm-5pm, Wednesdays 10am-3pm, Thursdays 10am-2:30pm and 4pm-5:30pm, and Fridays 10am-1pm.

If none of these slots work with your schedule or if you would like to meet with a specific coordinator, send us an email at independentconcentrations@brown.edu to set up an appointment.

This website is intended to answer some basic questions, but it's no substitute for an in-person meeting! Plan to stop by often as you work on your proposal.
