The Brown University Graduate School is the graduate school of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The school offers 43 doctoral programs and 23 master's programs.[1]


While originally established in 1850 under university president Francis Wayland, graduate study at Brown ceased after seven years of operation. In 1887, the Graduate School was re-established; the first master's degrees were awarded in 1888, and the first Ph.D's in 1889.[2]

Today, the Graduate School comprises faculty from nearly every department in the University and grants nine distinct degrees. The Graduate School is also home to the Taubman Center for Public Policy and American Institutions.
