Renowned faculty experts, breadth of degrees and majors, the stimulating academic climate and nationally recognized undergraduate SAGES curriculum make a Case Western Reserve education about much more than science and technology.
Case Western Reserve accepts undergraduates to the university as a whole and encourages students to explore disciplines across the board. Intimate classes —from engineering courses to dance workshops — offer a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio, ensuring one-on-one attention from professors, as well as vigorous class discussions that challenge perspectives and nurture new understandings.
Classrooms here have walls, but possibilities at Case Western Reserve are boundless. The university provides the highest tech computing, abundant library resources and a bookstore stocked with more than just reading material. Meanwhile, educational services — like tutoring, TA-training, time management strategies and writing help — are available to keep you at the head of your class.
Our campus, nestled in Cleveland's University Circle, pulses intellectual energy, laying out more than 50 cultural, historical, religious and medical institutions within short walking distance. Students can take art history courses at the Cleveland Museum of Art, attend recitals at the Cleveland Institute of Music or pursue joint-programs with one of our partner schools.
What education would be complete without experience? Many Case Western Reserve students graduate with a respected degree and a year's worth of hands-on experience. From study abroad and service learning to undergraduate research, co-ops and internships (with some of the world's top organizations), our graduates are worldly wise, well connected and experienced.

Online Learning

Case Western Reserve University offers two online degree programs. The first, the online Master's of Science in Social Administration, comes from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, which offers the nation's ninth-ranked program in social work. The same faculty members who teach at the school developed the online curriculum and lead the courses. The second is the Master of Laws degree in International Business Law, the only online program offered from a school ranked in the top 15 in the country for international law.
