Undergraduate Certificate Programs are pathways developed by one or more academic units and approved by the College Curriculum Council that enable degree-seeking students to pursue an integrated combination of coursework, co-curricular and experiential learning. Together, these experiences contribute to your academic and personal development, deepening your understanding of an area of interest while allowing you to acquire skills that prepare you for life after Brown.
Certificates may complement your existing concentration or may represent an entirely distinct area of interest. However, according to certificate guidelines, your concentration and certificate may not have substantial overlap (each certificate has a list of excluded concentrations). Certificate programs also may not be developed in areas in which a concentration already exists.
