Uniquely Brown

Brown has established several study abroad initiatives that engage students in global research, collaboration, and academic focus beyond the traditional study abroad models.  Here are a few of our newest initiatives. 

Brown + 1

Students complete a graduate-level course while abroad during junior year.  After graduating from Brown, they have the opportunity to return to the study abroad institution to complete a one-year masters program.  Learn more.

Global Independent Study (GLISP)

The Brown Global Independent study is a structured approach to academic research while abroadStudents work with a Brown faculty member leading up to their time abroad to develop a research proposal, which they then complete for credit while abroad.  Upon return to Brown, students are encouraged to use the GLISP  as a catalyst for continued research, senior capstones, honors theses, enhanced faculty international collaboration and exchange, etc. Learn more.

Brown 4+4

The purpose of the 4+4 Study Abroad Model is to maximize global learning through institutional and student collaboration. Partnering with another institution, Brown offers a program for 4 weeks at the partner organization and 4 weeks at Brown during the summer.  An equal number of participants represent the two institutions, and participate in the full 8 weeks.  The result is conversation, debate, and connection that promotes a collaborative approach to global inquiry.
