IC Proposal

Submitting an IC Proposal

Submitting an IC is a straightforward process that asks students to think deeply about their goals and trajectory at Brown and formulate their various interests into a coherent independent path -- arguably something that all Brown students should do.

The IC proposal process consists of:

Proposals are reviewed by the Independent Concentration Committee, which meets six times during the school year. Submission deadlines are the first day of the month in September, October, November, February, March, and April.

Completed IC applications should be emailed as single PDF files (including the application and the Faculty Sponsor's letter) to Margaret_Chang@brown.edu AND Independent_Concentrations@brown.edu.
