Integrated Graduate Studies
(BA/MA or BA/MS)
The Integrated Graduate Studies Program (IGS) is intended for highly motivated undergraduate students who are candidates for the BA and whose objective is a degree at the master's or doctorate level. By more closely integrating undergraduate and graduate studies, qualified students may be admitted to graduate study for their senior year and pursue the simultaneous completion of requirements for both the master's and bachelor's degrees. The baccalaureate will normally be awarded upon completion of a year of graduate study and attainment of a total of 120 semester hours of credit.
Eligibility requirements for admission to graduate school through IGS are:
- 90 semester hours earned of which the last 60 hours must have been in residence at Case Western Reserve University
- Completion of the Arts and Sciences General Education or SAGES Requirements and two semesters of physical education
- Completion of three quarters of the requirements for the major concentration.
Not all departments participate in the IGS programs. Below is a partial listing. If a major that you are interested in is not listed, please contact the department directly.
