Brown University has a long tradition of creating, encouraging and fostering interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary programs.

It is possible to apply for permission to enroll as a master's student pursuing integrative graduate study. The application process depends on whether the individual is already enrolled in a degree-granting program at Brown, as is detailed in the Graduate School Handbook.

It is incumbent on the individual to propose a self–designed plan of study leading to either the master of arts or the master of science. Evidence of Brown faculty support is required, per handbook guidelines. The Graduate Council will review the completed application package for approval.

Those interested in pursuing integrative studies as a doctoral student may learn more at the Ph.D. in Integrative Studies page.
