Our Research and Practice
Our faculty and doctoral students lead research and practice projects all over the globe, often engaging students as research assistants to partner in their work.
Global problems and approaches are taught as part of our core course offerings. Special courses and transdisciplinary seminars are offered by Brown School faculty on a regular basis on location around the world.
Our faculty are committed to sharing their knowledge with the next generation of global leaders. They lead field-based courses globally, train our masters and doctoral students to assist in worldwide research initiatives, and help those students with interest in global work to find unique and challenging practicum placements.
My research has focused on ensuring the safety, empowerment, and well-being of women and children across the globe, and I am so grateful to have found a home for this work at the Brown School.
My international practicum with the Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ) provided me with the opportunity to engage the skills I had cultivated locally and apply them to a global context.
The Brown School is proud to have alumni working in the US and internationally on pressing global challenges. From Grand Challenges in Social Work, Global Priorities for Public Health and the Sustainable Development Goals our alumni are working at the forefront of change.
Brown School students come from all over the world to learn the skills to work on local and global problems.
