Brown’s pre-college online courses are rigorous, active learning experiences designed and led by Brown’s innovative, dedicated instructors. 

Explore challenging subjects through coursework designed to inspire curiosity and discovery, engage in intellectual discussion, and connect with students from around the world – enthusiastic, creative and accomplished students like you.

Topics include health sciences, engineering, creative expression, leadership, and more. 

Balance learning and life with a flexible weekly schedule
Brown’s online courses are asynchronous, which means you are not required to log in at a set time. You can access your coursework anytime, anywhere. However, you will be expected to log in daily to participate in discussions and keep up with course assignments. You should expect to commit 10+ hours per week to complete your coursework.

Challenge yourself and grow through meaningful, personalized feedback
Throughout your course, you will interact with your instructor and your student colleagues. Your instructor will evaluate your assignments, respond to your discussion posts, and invite you to connect one-on-one to provide support and advance your learning. At the end of your course (if 3 weeks or longer), you will receive a written evaluation from your instructor summarizing your performance in the course. If your instructor determines that you have successfully met all course requirements, you also will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Pre-college online courses are not for college credit.
