Willfully handing over a large fraction of her parents’ income to study Modern Culture & Media and English, junior Maya Brennan is reportedly paying 70k a year to double concentrate in books and movies.
“A Brown education is totally worth the price tag,” said Brennan, whose two concentrations teach her about the nuances of both books and movies. “Freshman year, I was only studying books. But I found movies so interesting that I decided to double concentrate — which makes the investment even more worth it!”
“The advantage of the open curriculum is that I have the freedom to take courses in both departments,” added Brennan, confident that paying an amount that most families don’t even make in a year to take classes about books and movies is a smart financial decision that is greatly enhancing her intellect. “In one department, I learn about all sorts of books — big books, small books, you name it. And in the other? I learn about movies! Long movies, short movies, and everything in between!”
At press time, Brennan was excited to take a RISD course where she can learn all about pictures.
